This HoF list lets other users read the high quality captions at a centralized location, assuming good writers are more likely to produce good writings. The opt out would defeat the purpose of the feature when the statistics are filtered. The votes are contributed by numerous users, the hall-of-famers list basically reflect the votes results. You own the captions you wrote, but you don't own the votes. It does not make sense to have an election and then withhold the results. If the caption writers don't want other users to vote on their captions, they can pull themselves out of the voting process by deleting the captions once they've reached hall-of-famer status. Besides, if you don't want people to read your captions, why would you post them in the first place?
It would be nice if we can list the caption contributors by their Caption Karma, so that the contributors who score the most will be on the top of the list. Assuming a high overall score means all his/her captions are worth reading. If divide the total score by the number of captions written, we can tell the quality of the captions from each particular contributor.
