What do you think of this?

More and more I see people posting Bookscan numbers for authors’ books. (example) Not their own sales numbers–this is for authors they don’t know at all.

Cool? Not cool? I’m a little uncomfortable posting those numbers, like saying “Bill? He earns $65,000 a year at his sales job. Down a bit from previous years, but…”

It’s one thing if the author does it himself, but complete strangers? As much as I’d like to know my own Bookscan numbers, I wouldn’t like them posted online for everyone to read. (Note: I don’t actually want to know my Bookscan numbers.)
