There is no summary on this subject. Just refer to your marja’ on that.. and as for Ayatollah Sayyid Ali as-Sistani (may Allah prolong his life), his position in fact is not clear. He issued a fatwa prohibiting cursing in public based upon a particular and specific situation, where a group of brothers in Iraq at the height of sectarian conflict (more like our genocide as always...) just “lost it” publicly when the People of Ignorance bombed al Askari’s (peace be upon them and their descendants) mosque second time. If you read it in Arabic, the fatwa didn’t prohibit cursing of the enemies of Islam in public or private, it forbid the practice in that particular moment. 

In addition to this, Imam Khamenei may have meant cursing or may have meant insulting, depending on the original Farsi fatwa, and didn't mention about public and private.

- Sayyed Khamenei never distinguished between public and private, he simply prohibited offending the figures of our opponents

- most jurists throughout history have declared cursing and insulting as mustahab deeds against those who deserve it, such as the people who propogate bid'ah, deviance and kufr

- to each to their own marja. They have different views on bara'ah and taqiyya, and whether jahr bil bara'ah (publicising bara'ah) is acceptable is dependant on context and circumstances. Most ulama seem to believe it is not in the interest to publicise it, although a handful do.

Complete summary.
