man, it gives me the willies to see my postings from ten years ago archived and
public.  Even back then I was conscious of this stuff all being permanent, but,
ow, it's still whack to see that post about the Martian Manhunter from '94
Google up next to my name.  Overall it makes my online writing more stiff -- I
wonder how this post will strike prospective employers in '11?  How do people
convince themselves to use bad words on FoRK, knowing that every one is
archived?
