Google.com and Personal messenger

Recommended Posts

My least favorite member of this forum is Google.com.

 

I now note that google.com is spending a tremendous amount of time "Using Personal Messenger". Is there any chance our friends at Google are indexing our private messages to each other? Can google.com be eliminated from this forum?

Often wondered about those 2 myself. Makes me a little nervous, but actually prefer them being listed as logged in members instead of guests or, even worse, anonymous.

 

Perhaps the 'moderating team' or someone could explain to us newcomers exactly who they are & what they are doing here?

 

I'm beginning to suspect Orwell was an optimist.

I just noticed forummember 'Google' is still scanning al the board profiles (click details at guestlist). I second this old request from Warmaster..

Google crawler only indexes information publicly available and what the is set by the board settings to allow it to see. It's actually very simple to disable web crawlers but without them the forum or the site won't receive hits on search engines. It does not collect private messages or anything you privately add to the forum.
