I voted that I don't care because IMO nothing on the internet is private. Some may be yes but I always err on the side of caution and assume it is not.

I personally like having a little area that I know is private on MDC.  Of course, I know it's the web and it doesn't take much to find stuff but it makes me feel safer.  I think what really bothers me is that there is no big announcements at the top of the forum.

Hi everyone hola.gif

 

I posted to this thread in Q&S several days ago but forgot to post about it here. Just thought you'd want to know. redface.gif

I'm one of those who didn't even know it had been private to begin with.   I keep myself pretty anonymous on MDC.   So I guess I don't care that it's no longer private.

 

Edited to add, Aha!  Thank you for the explanation, Cynthia.

The forum has been called Talk Amongst Ourselves since it was opened back in 1999-2000 and was never private or restricted until this past year when we restricted it to a specific member group. It is still restricted to MDC members so it is "talking amongst ourselves" and visitors cannot read the forum.

I found out a few weeks ago when someone who pissed me off in another forum posted a response to my thread in TAO. She/he had 5 posts. I was irritated because I felt like I was specifically putting the thread in TAO because I wanted responses from people who have spent time on this board, not someone who was pissy about a two year old thread that they found through google.

I'm not questioning the reality of that scenario, but it boggles the mind that people do that.  I am sure I've gotten into disagreements (arguments, even) with people on this forum, but I couldn't even tell you their names.  I'm probably the type that ends up fighting with them in one thread whilst simultaneously agreeing with them in another.  Life is too short.  shrug.gif
