My rule of thumb is not to type anything in a public forum that I want kept private. If I don't want remembered and repeated, I don't say it. By the same token, I rarely have "private" conversations over chat or speaker phones.

Can anyone imagine a judge buying the argument that someone screaming "$Variable_B has 21 write ups and -7XP" in the middle of Times Square at Noon was engaging in a private conversation with someone across the street and anyone who repeated it was invading their privacy?

If Rozallin (or anyone else) wants to quote my .sig, or any other perls of wisdom I drop, I'm honored. I'd appreciate an email letting me know that something I said was deemed quoteworthy, but the very act of posting words on a public forum invalidates any claim that the words were private. I would, however, expect proper attribution.
