About this new option, which shows a strong "warning" of its permanence...
Does making this choice mean that said questions will then become visible to Google, and to the public at large, instead of just within the HP community? (There are some questions I might not ask or answer outside the relative "safety" of HP....)

I'm unsure whether or not to make this move without that further information.
Even without you switching them to your subdomain outside visitors can find your questions and answers through search engines.
Questions have always been visible to Google.
All of the forums, and the Q&A section have ALWAYS been visible to Google and searchable by the public at large. There is no part of this site that is "private" to just the HubPages community although to participate in many aspects does require registration.
The only stuff private is material not yet published.
I think it's a great way to get 'noticed' don't be too shy about asking or answering questions. FREE publicity!
Ok, thank you everyone. In that case, I guess it does not matter. I was under the impression that there were areas that gave out the message, "You must sign in or register to view this page."

My screen name is well chosen, it would seem......

If the questions are causing traffic problems, I suggest that they be removed from the profile page and out of our individual subdomains. I would rather lose the money from Adsense if it would help with the page-views...
