I always look at my food when I eat. Mostly because there isn't really anything else to look at at the table.

That and it keeps me from looking at the people I'm eating with, since I'm disgusting when I eat.

I gaze into its milky depths, searching the wheat and sugar for the meanings I can never find.
It's like tea leaf divination, but with cartoon leprechauns.

Truean, out of totally random curiosity (and it's okay if you don't want to respond for some reason), why are you so adamant about people not quoting you? It's in your sig, it's at the header of most of your posts, and I've never seen anyone else, on any forum, be so persistent about making sure they don't get quoted.

Perhaps a lack of faith? "Don't quote me, I could be wrong" type thing?

It's about e-discovery. If no one quotes the post, it's a lot harder to find, because it's only on the internet once, instead of multiple times.

*shrug* I thought I read something about not quoting due to e-discovery (legally obtainable data, metadata, etc,) but I may have misunderstood what I read. I know practically nothing about legal practices, other than that I know practically nothing about them.

I'm pretty sure Truean has disclaimers against quoting because she doesn't want anything she says to be misconstrued as legal advice.

Mild WTF: I completely forgot Truean's gender for a minute there and nearly used "he" ._.;

The major thing about a post being discovered is that for the most part, it beomes easier to find the more times they're brought to it through a search result. So if someone did a google search on the domain "bay12forums" and found one of her posts it would be easier to spot after that link is clicked. Assuming toady doesn't have a robots.txt file or whatever it's called that prevents the spider activity. Assuming those even work anymore.

Owlga said it before I think, if you don't want something discoverable on the internet. Don't post it. Though I don't think any individual post on this board is a potential danger.

Plus, there's also Wayback machine that can theoretically find you even if you destroy the information.

Google still respects them, AFAIK, but this site is crawled here (though all links end up returning as ;wap2)

I remember seeing the robots.txt file so I know for sure there is one.

Yeah, there is a robots.txt.

Also, if you're not quoted you can just edit your post and the information will be gone. (She did this with her "I'm back" post)

From robots.txt:

So it's blocked here. No waybacking on bay12forums for you.
