I keep forgetting to share this with you, but if you enclose any text with [hide] and [/hide], it will be replaced by "Sorry, but you must be logged in to see this text" for people who aren't logged in. It will *also* turn the text red and put it in italics so as to let the people logged in know that it's being kept under wraps.

{ Sorry, you must be logged in to see this text! }

That was an example, if you're not logged in. ;-)

The primary use of this code is to keep the search engines from grabbing certain things we might not want searchable. It might also be good for certain "nsfw" stuff, naah mean.

I wondered about that when I saw the first place you did it. You guys continue to amaze with the add-ons and upgrades.

I have a related question. { Sorry, you must be logged in to see this text! }

Is that a realistic problem to worry about?

    Hmm.
No, because headers and signatures are removed for guests (and people in "Dial-up Mode") as I said in the test forum when somebody tried this.

Also, if people abuse this, I'll just remove the tags.

It is theoretically possible, but I don't expect any bot to be THAT interested in us at this time. As always, use your damn noodle and exercise common sense at all times.

I wouldn't say things like that. You aren't being protected by anything more than the fact that unregistered guests (aka search engines, new people) can't read what you put there.

Registering is still free and easy.
