In my opinion, publishing the names of closed members is a bad idea because
the ex-members deserve some privacy.  I will seek legal advice on whether
or not to publish such lists in future.

Hi Alan

Let me ask this differently perhaps I will get a clear answer.

Ref: Defaulted members:  how much recovered space from 2015, 2016 and 2017
and where are these recovered  ressoutces?

You are concerned about closed member privacy yet this is public
information,  how many  members have since closed?
