Tracking people should be more private

With regard to the "People Tracking Me" and "People I am Tracking" feature in my Chow, I would like to suggest that these are not made viewable to the general public. One of the nice things about Chowhound has always been the range of people that participate and the variety of subjects that such a range of people tend to generate.

If the tracking parameters are left public, I'm afraid this could open the door for pettiness and sore feelings. Chowhound is too valuable a resource and too rich a community to let feelings of jealousy and contempt creep in. Unfortunately, this is what I see developing if such a popularity contest is allowed to develop through the publicly displayed tracking parameters in my Chow.
