What's the question? Why are they public? Because most people don't realize they can change who can see their lists and the default used to be public. I have lists like those, but they're private.

OK, I didn't guess cortometrajes meant "shorts." But otherwise...why have public lists where no one can tell what the hell their theme is? And it's not as if the lists are by newbies who don't know the ropes.

I make most of my lists like that on iCM and IMDb private but I’m sure I sometimes forget. I have hundreds. I’m not really thinking of other people coming across them, I’m making them for me temporarily, so I’m not considering that really. I also name them that way to let myself know I can delete it later but deleting lists on iCM is too hard so that usually doesn’t happen... I wish there was a better way of filtering personal lists so they didn’t come up, but it’s not really a big deal (easy to scroll past since the names are meaningless).

These should be modded, yes.
In that, they should remain public since the user may have some use for that, but there should be a separate space to view relevant, official but not Official lists.

People also shouldnt have the ability to change the list content willynilly if people are already following the list.
he or A. or Armo or any
