Like the old school forums where there is a list of people currently viewing your post.
I would rather have some privacy.
Showing who is viewing your post could lead to:
- OP requesting (or forcing) the viewers to answer his/her question
- People knowing who cast the upvotes/downvotes
Browsing in private allows us to view questions without any worries. We can always make our own decision on whether or not to respond to a post, either as a comment or an answer.
As the one who posted the question, I would stick around for a while since people here usually give quick responses. There is already a view count for you to judge the likelihood of getting a response. If there aren't any responses for a while, check the notifications later on to see if there is one.
