  • Nobody should be able to see your posts in a private group, as long as the owner or admin has set every individual forum and area of the group to private. Then only members can see.
    We can search your screen name and see your answers in the Answers section, but you can answer anonymously if you don't like that. Or stay out of the Answers sections.
    You can also write Journals and set those to Friends Only as well.
    There are ways to help protect your privacy to a certain extend.

  • I don't think there is a way to do that. I think as long as you are making posts here they are all searchable.

  • Well as I said, if the group has been properly set to private by its admins, then no one except other members of the group should be able to see anyone's posts in there.

  • It's up to the admins if the content shows up in the search or not. Even if it does show up, non-members of the private groups cannot read the posts, only the thread title and your name.

  • If it is on the internet, it is not private
