Re: Be careful...

The Internet has a *terrible* memory. I've tried finding things I posted on Usenet 20 years ago, and had no luck despite knowing exactly what I was looking for, and having a whole department of Google to draw on. Try finding a website from that era - chances are that even the Wayback machine only has a small selection of pages, if that.

It's a total myth that once you post it online it's there forever. Sure, *someone* probably has access to that material - but not ordinary drones like us.
