    You do realize that almost everything on this site is publicly accessible without creating so much as a user account, right?

    I've found older threads using Google before.

    This is a public forum, not a secret journal. :p

    I understand how the internet search engines work, thanks.


    I just don't like how that site thinks that B's blog is my last post. He's the one who can change it.

    i went to the site and don't see that particular post
    looks like auto feeds to his blog from his forums

    how did you happen upon that?

    Wasn't trying to explain how search engines work.

    Was saying that anything posted on the site is totally public. But now I understand what your actual complaint is. You didn't really even hint at what it may happen to be till just now. :p

    Looks like it's just the RSS feed doing it's thing though, that's probably just the user acct that B signed up for Yahoo on.

    it only tracks the last 10 or so threads in it. it's not full content... just a snippit. it's more for stats than anything.

    i have all my sites on it. there's nothing to fix about it.

    you can find the same thing on technorati

    I sometimes forget how public this forum is. I really need to stop posting relationship/girl related stuff on here. At the moment if any girl were so inclined and knew my username, they could back track my thinking on the subject for at least 5-6 years. Not to mention stuff I have done that the majority of my friends don't know about.

    yes, but the forum doesn'te ven show up if you're not logged in.

    so, unless someone makes an account here, and enters the password, they won't be able to even know it exists.

    I don't know about that. I just logged out, cleared my browser history, cleared my cookies, exited browser, and opened a new browser. I went to HS and I did not see the nws forum. Maybe you still had the cookie, I am not a pc guy.

    it's your computer.

    it does not show up at all.
    (screens 1 and 2)

    if you happen to know the url, it prompts you to login first.
    (screen 3)
