good thinking. I see your point about this. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesnt but especially for me, if you search your name on google, A whole bunch of your posts and things come up, even PM's

I was thinking about internet safety today, and this came to my mind.

On your profile statistics page, and many other places, and member can see a list of the last 500 posts you have made. They can easily breeze through them, and if your replies are on the shorter side, they can see everything you wrote without even loading a new page.

Now, the thought crossed my mind of how easy it would be if someone was following you to quickly look through all of those posts, and get tons of information about you so very easily.

While we should all never give away personal information, I know sometimes we slip, and sometimes a detail we see as harmless ends up saying a lot about you.

Without these lists, it would be virtually impossible to find the last 500 posts a person has made, when the total post count on this whole board is over 8 million posts.

I would really like to see the option of making it so only you can look through your posts page. Internet safety seems to be a priority on this site, which is one of the reasons I love it here.
YES!!!! I was thinking about this the other day, and how dangerous it was. This would be the perfect solution!!! Rep point!!

That is a great idea! We need My Posts and My Threads to be private!

Well it doesn't matter about this because you aren't supposed to post personal info, and most people dont, so seeing someone's posts isn't really bad.
