Me too! I changed my photo because I didn't realize anybody could just stumble on this with a simple google search.
You can put your profile on "private" by going to the settings section and profile so people won't see your profile.., I'm not 100% sure whether that blocks discussions from appearing in public though, I really don't think it is possible. Have you thought about choosing an anonymous name and pic?
Thanks, yes. I took off my last name and put up that little drawing. I just don't want my fellow 30-BaDers to think I'm trying to hide anything from them! Anyway, it's probably a good thing that the site is popping up on Google. I can live with it.

it isn't possible unless you do it the way bella does where the entire site is inaccessible except to members ... which sort of defeats the point of having 30bad.
besides, that approach encourages invasive infiltrations and covert campaigns.
being anonymous is the logical alternative - and it can provide considerable hedonistic pleasure too especially when one is a spy.
I wish I'd chosen to just put my first name from the start. Oh well live and learn! :) I changed it to just my first name but my previous discussions still show up on google search and lead back to all my discussions. Silly me.. Thanks for your help though :)
