hey fox, i can see how you might think that, but it's a security issue. and i'd think that of all people, you'd be sensitive to security issues. and this isn't about me, or this thread. i am just pointing out good internet practice.
some people here have stalkers. others just want to keep their commitments and actions private. take the recent meet-up thread, where you posted. letting the world know that your home is going to be vacant while you're in orlando overnight just isn't a smart idea. you never know who might use that information to break in or whatever. it's the same with facebook. i like to think i don't have any lowlife FB friends, but there have been plenty of documented break-ins because people have posted plans on fb or checked into faraway locations via foursquare.
clearly, i refuse to be chased off the internet by stalkers or even overly edit myself on a public forum, but if someone is expecting a little more privacy in a member's forum (i.e., no search engines) then that should be respected. hipinion is a big forum, and no one knows exactly who might be a member and so everyone should be aware of that, but we do know which threads will end up as search engine results and which won't - or at least we did until this thread was moved.
until this post, there was nothing even remotely approaching personal information in this thread
