When the administrators changed it, they left the previous rep comments in place, meaning you could now see who gave rep in the past, back before the comment authors were made visible. I didn't think that was fair... I likened it to an Ex Post Facto law.
Note that I'm not really all that ashamed of what I said personally, so much as I'm irritated that they did it that way, implying it would be anonymous and then "pulling the rug out from underneath," so to speak.
Their excuse was that they had referred to it as a "test," earlier, and that I should have inferred from the fact that they were still determining how they wanted to use it, that anonymous comments could have author names revealed. Of course, in the end, it's their board, so they don't really have to justify themselves to anyone but themselves and their supporters.
That's why I cringe every time I think about this.
