    There has been a concern raised of the ability to "profile" users based on posts since they are all in the public domain.
    for the discussion.

    As Terl Obar said in the related forum post, I'm not sure the privacy need offests forcing newcomers to register for a site with unknown value. I'm not sure the juice is worth the squeeze.

    i wouldn't be able to link to my discussions with others in my network... this would greatly reduce the plausible reasons to post topics and interact in discussions here, when more public social media is available that can provide crowed-sourced sharing more easily. Don't see why anyone would want to squeeze the juice that dry.

    We should leave it up to the multi-armed Zanzibanian short women and their exploding wigs of death! I'm all about open source.
