If someone could explain me though why forums in a .LRN
instance are considered private data, this would be great.

Each forum post shows the name of the author. In the US, the law says that "privacy" means "someone outside the community can't see the names of the people enrolled in a class". The current solution is to restrict Guest visitors from viewing the forums.
