This is what I’m thinking. Simple and clean. Per user doesn’t make sense to me, we already have options explosion on the user preferences sadly…
Sadly this proposed obsfucation implementation is significantly more complex, I guess the difference between building the feature in a week or a few hours.
Plus it does not address the fundamental privacy concern
I was thinking about it from the perspective of leaking information out of the community, but I guess leaking info to the admins is a factor too, depending on the community and the individual.
Personally, I trust the admins of the site I use enough to not care if they see me sharing links. I mostly remove my username from the URL when sharing links outside the community itself, and even then that’s more to keep the URL clean than to hide the fact that it was me who shared it.
