Why are my subscriptions and bookmarks shown in other members' profiles?

When I open someone else's user profile, a lot of information is displayed, arranged in sections and boxes. Headings include "My Liked Posts", "My Tags", "My Groups", etc. and, of course, these refer to their liked posts, their tags, groups and so on.

 

But on the same page, in between the other user's content, there are also "My Subscriptions" and "My Bookmarks" and these are my own subscriptions and bookmarks, which I find confusing.

 

Is this a bug or a feature?

This is now fixed.  I removed the "My Subscriptions" and "My Bookmarks" items from the User Profile page.  For your own Subscriptions and Bookmarks, you can always find them here.  Link is in the drop menu under your name in the notification area (top right of screen).

It's jarring to some of us, too, @FreelanceReinhard; thanks for mentioning it. I've added it to the list of improvements. Watch this space for an update.

Thanks, Chris! This avoids the impression of a strange coincidence that the other user bookmarked/subscribed to virtually the same set of topics as oneself.
