Dear members of Monachos,
Although we have tried in the past to remind everyone that this is not a private forum and that anything posted on Monachos is viewable by the public, still we get desperate requests to remove posts or to somehow make them invisible to the search engines.
THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE!!!
Please always be mindful that whatever is posted here is visible to the whole world through Google and other search engines. The archives (old posts) are also visible. Think before you post - is this something that you will not regret? Are you posting personal information in the guise of a "prayer request" or simply as a "personal example"? Are you behaving in a way that your family, friends and/or future employers might find distressing? Be mindful of what you post here (or really in any internet venue - this is not unique to monachos) because it will be with you always. Even if a post were to be deleted from monachos (which is not done btw) it would still be available through the internet archive sites such as the "way back machine".
So let me repeat - This is not a private venue and once you hit the "send" button, whatever you have written becomes visible to the whole world. Be mindful of what you say and do - the world is watching.
