How long is a secret be kept a secret?
is there a timeline for secrets? expiry date? because in the end, secrets will have to be revealed.
Why "must" they eventually be revealed?
They do remain secret till revealed. Technically, if anyone else is told or shown what was unknown by anyone else, they're already non-secret.
I think that indicating that a secret exists, even without revealing it, ruins it. In fact, if someone implies there is something which isn't being revealed, that stirs much speculation which surely may be cause the "secret" to be judged more or worse that whatever the secret really IS!
A secret is a secret only until the person who was trusted with that secret passes it along to the next recipient. After that, the delectable tidbit becomes known as "an item"......
A secret should be kept until the "owner"/originator of the secret officially announces to anyone with whom s/he has shared the secret that the information has been "cleared for sharing". Unless and until that happens secrets should be kept. There are no expiration dates on secrets; and if someone who has been asked to keep a secret deems there is, what s/he'll find has "expired" forever is the trust of the person who shared the secret in the first place.

Is anyone else here feeling pretty much turned off by the elitist moderators on HubPages?Their explanations for allowing some questions to stand and banning others are beyond lame. Then there is that "thing" of banning decent people without explanation and choosing not to respond to...
