I thought the RSS feed button was a great idea, but when I installed it via a Firefox extension, I noticed that some of the topic headings were from a private forum for the moderators to discuss things.

I hoped that it was just because I was a moderator, but another moderator logged on as a regular member and saw those feeds as well. He couldn't click on the feeds and get into the private forums, fortunately, but they were still displayed.

Is there anything in the settings we can do to turn that off.

Perhaps this should go in the suggestions forum, but it seems to me that it would be a good idea to have it turned off by default.

Thanks.

It looks like it was my mistake anyway. Another mod switched to his wife's computer and tried and those threads from the private forum no longer showed up with a regular user's account. It must have been the cookies which were still there on his computer even after he switched identities.
