If you don't want other people to read it don't freakin post it.
For chrissakes, even if it was members only, some jackass would have another reason to try to hack ZMD's boards.
Not something happening with this site. End.
Swamp's 100% right. That board should stay the way it is..

Look, if you wanna do that, fine....I think if you put more thought into what you were posting and possible repurcussions, then that (as far as the Diaries board is concerned) would help...
I've gotten to the point (call me paranoid, if you will) of not putting anything of sensitive or extremly personal material out on the net.
If people wanna find it, they will. I think that's the point you're missing.

For what it is worth, I totally agree with Flash. If people really wanna see it, having the members-only restriction isn't going to stop them.

Thats why I believe that IF there is a restriction placed on the diaries board (or just individual threads), it should be member w/ 50 or more posts instead of just a member.

The only feasable benefit that I can see of this is that Google will not crawl over the diaries page. It takes 5 minutes at the most to register for an account, so making them "members-only" is far from private.

The only downside I could think of is that Diaries wouldn't be backed up by Archive.org. For now, however that doesn't really matter, because for the past two years, Archive.org apparently hasn't been able to archive ZMD threads anyway. =P

Which brings me to ask: Besides ZD's robots.txt file (which is not currently set to block any robots from viewing anything in the wwwthreads directory), does the server currently have something set up to recognize connections by robots, and block them?

I also have a Livejournal where I post stuff... and I know when to make my posts public, and when not to.

I didn't mean that people should just leave the diaries forum altogether, but they should know better than to post about sensitive stuff here. Stuff that can bite them back in the ass later, you know?

Anyway, sorry for my outburst.

I can already stop the major search engines from crawling the diaries board. If you put up a robots.txt, the major ones will honor what you instruct it to do.

Google can be blocked with a simple line in robots.txt, though.
