An escort who's been keeping an eye on my profile for malicious Client Notes has told me that she's now unable to see "public" notes left by others, only those made by herself. And this is the reason given:
Regrettably, too many members have failed to get the point of Client Notes and have been telling clients that they were marked as a timewaster or that they had negative comments. Others have been using Client Notes to be malicious towards clients or for personal vendettas.
Client Notes was developed to help service providers remain safe. Evidently the long term benefits this system provided have not been realised or valued by the very people it was designed to protect.
Accordingly, public comments and 'experience scores' now reflect only the information you have provided and not that of the membership as a whole, as was previously the case.
It's not clear whether this applies just to her, or to everyone
. But she didn't get this as an AW email, it's in a box on the Client Notes description page. So either she's seeing a custom version of the page due to some sort of technical wizardry by AW, or it applies to everyone with access to Client Notes. Perhaps our resident WG's can check this out? She'd like to know if she's been singled out, but a blanket disabling seems more likely.
