Why is Cafemom content being read and stored by BoardReader?

Cafemom, I'm a little disturbed at finding all my posts, including the #, frequency, links to my profile, etc. being taken from Cafemom by a site called BoardReader. Is this legal? Can you block it?

  • uuugh I just checked it out and it has all of my post and post that I have replied to on there. If you want to check it out go to boardreader.com then type in your cafemom username.

  • It makes me want to delete all of my post and replies. I thought you had to be a cafemom member to read what's on cafemom.

  • yes.. i'm seriously thinking of deleting. i don't share my cafemom activities with ANYONE... why would it be allowed to be shared .

    i can't wait for cm to answer this question. i have sent it to them in contacts so they can come to answer but it's the weekend so we'll probably have to wait until monday.

  • Sometimes it comes up when you google a question and your answer will come up with your profile name.

  • Ladies, I just tried this and nothing comes up with my name. I have all my settings set to private and only my friends can see them so maybe you need to check your privacy settings?

  • Also, if you google your user name while you are logged into Cafemom, it will show up all your posts but if you log out, it will not. It is because the cookies are stored on your computer so they refresh or delete when you log out.
