Understand. However, the probability of that happening is low since the full
reference generated should stay unique. It is a risk I take to minimize what
news bots can determine about my posts. My logs are already full of cracker
attempts. I even get nervous about having my address in mailing lists since I
have seen some hacked in the past. I figure that is a risk I must take to
receive information in which I am interested.

first post?  Since it is nothing but comments ...

Thank you for your help.
