Personal Status Updates (Public Messages)

Recommended Posts

This forum has 'Personal Status Updates', aka 'Public Messages', which are public posts 'within' a user's profile, rather than part of a discussion forum. I see these because I monitor c.net via RSS - as I mentioned in this post. Since asking that question I've seen a few of these and concluded that they're mostly accidental, that the user probably thought they were posting a forum topic, but I don't know.


Today I got a link to this status update which contains a tune (you may have to scroll down). I suspect that many (most?) people won't see that post. I don't know how others read the forum, but status updates are not included by default in unread content - or they're not for me.


Should status updates be included by default in unread content? Existing users might consider adding them.
