Why did you choose to make the "public wish list" public from the start? I saw this on facebook, followed through to the link, and it showed my wish list has been made public without my knowledge. Damnit, that's just not cool. I just deleted everything in my wish list for the same reason I deleted everything from my Amazon list, and that's because they made the list public without my knowledge.

What the hell people?

Looks like it can be toggled to "Private", but I'm guessing that the wish list by default is "Public" to try to incur sales and such.

They shouldn't opt their users in. They should have made it private by default, then allow users to opt in if they want. I deleted my entire list because now I don't know who can see it and who can't.

Sent the ticket earlier, but I didn't have to contact Bjaker, he contacted me. I'm going to say this again in the wake of all the privacy concerns that came from the roll outs of features on Facebook, Google plus and others... When you roll out new features that potentially impact a user's privacy, you make the default that everyone is opted out by default and let the user decide to opt on in or not. A wish list, in my mind, is a "I wish I had that" list, not a "I wish someone would buy that for me" list. If Crunchyroll wants to add a feature for "I wish someone would buy that for me", they can do so. If they do it will remain empty. As it stands I've emptied my wish list entirely because I do not know if Crunchyroll will change that setting in the future without my knowledge.

Oh you know what's even better? You're wish list isn't just visible to members, it's visible to everyone whether they are members or not... This represents a huge fail on Crunchyroll's part.

Ok, so after initial contact, nothing. Thanks a lot Bjaker.
