I was on google the other day, and I decided for fun that I would put Linkyluke into the search, and it came up with loads of kosmor pages, including what posts I had done, and my whole account information. Everyone could see my email adress, how old I am, where I live. I quit the game so nobody could see this and came back, but why was all my account information there.

the answer is simple. the kosmor-forum is public, you can enter and read it without an account. and therefore the contest of the forum are public too as maeli didn't enable any technical solution to prevent spiders and robots to crawl and index the contents of the forum. i do not see any problem with that as many boards do the same and if you are using services like googlemail, facebook, xing or else, your data are public too. if you do not want to have such contents from you in the public, you have to use better nicknames which cannot be identified with your person or switch to boards which are strictly internal.
