sorry i'm not quite sure what you mean...
the folk from google need to be able to view the posts in order to trawl them to make them into hits on google?
i don't know anything about all that stuff...
does a person do that or a comp. program?
could we sign them up or could we grant them honourary membership or something?
personally... i'd prefer posts not to be linked to google. but... that is because i have already found this site. but i found it... through google. i did.
and thus if all the links out there for the posts / boards currently... if they either took you to the posts / boards (if a member) or to the join up pages / faq's (if not a member) well... publicity would be just the same as it is presently.
except... that requiring people to join up might go some way towards dissuading people who are 'just being nosey' (not to say some of them don't end up participating...) but it is to reduce the liklihood of peoples friends / family members / employers etc tracking ones posts online.
not failsafe. not at all... but a mild deterrant...
i think it would deter...
