Would it ever be possible to be able to review shouts on our profiles before they're publicly shared? Just wondering. I think it'd be helpful.

?? You can't review as in proof read them yourself before clicking the posting button? Strange request.

Stephen is talking about when other people post on your profile, not when posting something yourself...

That's not something that is made clear in his wording..If that's the case I still think it's a strange request, he seems to want censoring capability then. Why else would you want to review what people want to post. Either way, a user can still control what is shown on his profile since he can delete any comment posted.

Perhaps the inference is harder to pick up on when English is a second language.

It's not that weird a request; many blogs and similar have a vetting system for comments that the site's owner/staff can review before publishing, rather than having than auto-publish.

You're right, however, that it's simple for users to merely delete unwanted comments from their profile. For this reason, it seems unlikely that such a feature will be implemented.
