F 1 D 0 - 2003 06 15 at 0115 Passwords. What a world, oh what a world. There are a few reasons I'm password protecting this site. Here is one: people are sending viruses over, and making their messages look good by quoting some of my writing in reply. Yuck! Maybe the viruses are an accident. But still. It's spam and it's also infected. It's clear I've been writing for the benefit of strangers, and so now I'm closing membership to friends and to people who come out of hiding. One thing this will do in the short term is finish the Google Indexing which has occurred until now. But that is still personal writing for the benefit of strangers. This writing is for friends, for family, and for aquaintances who may become friends in the future. If I have to exclude people who want to remain anonymous, then so be it. That's all I know.
