Maintainer Post: Cleaning Up The Community

We are a pretty small community with 14 members. However, there are at least 20 people listed who 'watch' the community. As a maintainer, I find this rather alarming considering that those who are not members but are 'watching' can see any posts that are not marked as "friends only". So, the point of this entry is twofold:

1. Current members: please be very careful with what you post here. All posts, however mundane or innocent, should not be left public. The whole reason we are a closed community revolves around being able to post and comment about specific and personal matters in our lives and if it's public, any person willing to list themselves as a 'watcher' is able to see your business. And believe me, some of these people are not people you can trust with anything!

2. Those of you who still have the community listed under your friends page, will you please remove our community from your friends page so that you are no longer listed as a person who is 'watching' the community? Some of you are ex-members, some of you never even applied. No matter what the case, this community is not open to you and we do not wish to be bothered by you trying to read any little post you can if it is accidently marked "public". It's really sad to think some of you can't let bygones be bygones and insist upon 'checking up' on things that have nothing to do with you. So, be the bigger person here and stop 'watching' us.

I'm leaving comments disabled so that we don't get a lot of unnecessary comments, especially from people who are not even members. If you have something to say about this post, feel free to email me at bundunkiss@hotmail.com. I'd be happy to respond to any of your concerns or questions regarding the community and it's policies.

Take care, and have a nice day!!
