Concerns have been raised about (some) user information available via the
Labs DB replicas.

On review, these properties have been deemed sensitive by our security

user_properties: language, skin, timecorrection, varient

I have amended the views to remove these properties.

We (Labs admins) are available to help explain this change, and concerns
can be raised by contacting security at wikimedia.org
