Wow!!  I found that Google led me directly to my user page which has my e-mail address.  My user profile was not protected at all!  I googled your user name--"Dan Artley:" and saw your postings.  This should be protected.

Will: there is a gaping hole in the security of the forum!!  Can you fix it so that these problems go away?  If this is not something you can fix, please let us know that as well.  (Why not make the forum and use profiles invisible to anyone who has not signed in?  That would solve most of the problems.

Actually, it's not a hole. Many of the big time forum software do that by design.

Here's how it's accessed on BikeForums.net:

If there's a link, the spiders (Internet web robots [or BOTS as they are called] that crawl through URLs to find stuff for cataloging or searching) will find it. Google has good spiders or they wouldn't be the best Internet search engine out there.

Privacy is an illusion.  If you don't want people to find you, don't ever get on the Internet. You'll need to completely cut yourself off from society and go live in a cave in Sasquatch country, hunting your own food and making your own clothes.

Isaias. Well I never used that "dohicky" so I don't know what it is I can no longer do. I know that I cannot be logged in and still click on the Avatar and see the user profile.  The user profile is not hidden from the public now. 

What did the "dohicky" used to do that is no longer doable by any means? 

Thanks

doohickey has been re-enabled.  Seems there is a bug with the double messages.
