I'm seeing Notes from personal documents...

I don't know if this is a big deal or not, but I did a simple search for kindle.amazon.com

I ended up finding the .xml for kindle.amazon.com.

I played around, and found this:


Playing around, I've found that many users have seemingly no public notes shared.

Yet, when I go to urls like: https://kindle.amazon.com/profile/Art...

I see people with 0 public notes, yet i'm able to seemingly read notes they've made from stuff they're reading.

I'm also able to read notes made on "personal documents", which presumably isn't allowed, per the TOS...

Repro Steps:

1. Head to a url like: https://kindle.amazon.com/sitemap11.xml
2. Grab a url like: https://kindle.amazon.com/post/2DFEEC...
3. Chop off the date, so url is like: https://kindle.amazon.com/post/2DFEEC...
4. Read a note from a "personal document"

Result: I am reading notes from "personal documents" off off https://kindle.amazon.com

Expected: According to Amazon Kindle TOS, notes from personal documents aren't sharable

Note: Some of my notes are probably up somewhere, also.

Don't know if this is a big deal or not.
