There are plenty of times in life where you're (1) directly competing with others and (2) allowed to talk with them about how you've done and what you've accomplished. Why there and not here? What makes law school different than sports, business, or law?
Presumably a lot of these people are you friends for one. Second, there's no reason to rub anyone's face in the mud because someone has to finish at the bottom, and thankfully it wasn't you.
The reason as far as I can see is that grades aren't publicized anymore whereas similar factors which are ok to talk about (law Review, publishing, firm you work for) are generally public knowledge.
