Re: [tlug] Open archives are bad?

That's an odd choice of words. "Dump"? Dumping implies movement, and

Yes, sites are crawled. Bad analogy I suppose. I claim poetic license like I do with my punctuation and grammar. :) The takeway was external processing vice taking ownership, blah, blah, blah. No reason to expound really.

Huh? What is there to expect? I doubt there would be any noticeable
difference to anyone, really. Possibly minutely higher traffic, mostly
from search engine bots. Every now and again someone out there might do
a search and hit a TLUG archived posting and maybe find something
useful. Or not. And in either case, would TLUG or its members notice or
need to know?

It`s a mute point anyway. I could expound, but it wouldn`t change a thing. Let`s move on.

Which could be done anyway, without a switch to any other system.
There's nothing stopping the TLUG powers that be from re-implementing
the username/password requirement if they wanted to.
