Hi WoollyBully,


Is there any information that you would allow to be exposed? do you want to be removed from the leaderboard / trend pages?


A full SSL/token based API is something I would like to do but is a little way off, but I can offer some short term solutions.


Information currently available to the public (replace paul with your username)

alot of this is the same information but in different formats



At the moment if you are worried about privacy choosing a username that is not tied to any of your other accounts on the internet should mean that no one can identify you from the site :) (except the NSA with their end to end sniffing capabilities)
Another solution I can potentially offer if you are interested is to add a privacy option to your profile settings, when set this could disable all of the above urls.
If this does not meet your needs you can delete your account in the settings page and it will remove all of your uploaded data from the system.
Cheers,
Paul

Isn't that kind of like saying I want to be on twitter but I want all my tweets to be hidden.
