Pbase privacy needs a lot of work

A warning to all Pbase users : PBase has been UNABLE to ensure that albums that are marked "private" (i.e. are in a password protected gallery or marked as non-public at the gallery level or the image level) do not generate photos posted on to your public profile page. This has been the case for me not only for galleries marked private but for the relevant sub-galleries which should also be private. Pbase has been working with me on this issue for about a week and has still been unable to solve it -- I still have photos of my family and children which are marked private appearing publicly on the web under my name. I urge you all to look into this issue if you care about privacy -- to see which randomly generated photos Pbase puts on your profile (which of course requires logging out).

I have used Pbase for many years and am frankly stunned at how unhelpful they have been in solving this problem, and how unapologetic that my private images are splashed all over the internet.
