Default Private Forums?

I was thinking...and I realized unless you are in the GE (like me) all your posts anyone in the world that has internet access can view them. I was thinking that WI could make forums private until someone joins? I don't think it is too safe for ANYONE to be able to view my posts such as if I post on the DCT someone could be reading all our posts while we are posting without us knowing which I don't find too safe.

Just a thought.

Nothing is private on the internet. Never post anything that you don't want your boss, your parents, your teachers, your minister, or the IRS to read. This is true in general of the Internet, as many a politician has found out to their dismay.

As for WI, it's WI policy to have everything acessible to all members, excepting the GE of course.

Even THOSE aren't private. A good rule of thumb is: If you can see it, so can everyone else.

Instead of posting it here, I wanted to make sure everyone read it, so I made a thread explaining my thoughts: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...rivate-696139/

It's scary if you think about it sometimes but I guess you have to be careful on what you say.

... ooh, does that mean future employers, too? DX

Employer: I'm sorry, Bluski, but we cannot accept you as a cashier at Target because you are just too dang crazy.
Me: WHAT EVIDENCE DO YOU HAVE?!
Employer: all 20,000 some of your posts on WI.
Me: NOOOOO DX

... but srsly. Webberlily's right... if it's on the internet, people can find it and see it. Even private messages, though I would imagine that they are harder to see. A private forum wouldn't really help this, unfortunately. That's the sad truth about the internet...

Nothing on the internet is private. If you don't want someone to see what you're writing, don't even write it. If you don't want other members to see what you write, use PMs.
