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....)
If so, will said public be allowed to place answers or comments, or will that still be reserved for HP members only?
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.

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