Empty Tag Rooms vs Item private to group xxxxx

It might be nice to extend the news feature of showing an item private to a particular group rather than the Empty Tag Room message.

It IS more secure not to mention the group when an item is private on the other hand we should be consistent & helpful. IMHO the news room is less secure than the others (just an opinion). I don't expect anyone to put security info on FastBlogIt yet. Perhaps we should warn consumers of this in the so-called Front Page.

good idea and i tend to agree.  

So insead of not showing any private items in news, which would mean that people are not aware that they may be missing something in a group that they are not in at the moment, we show the comment or item and the group and just say it is private.  I like it,  solves a grizzly problem of how we make people aware of what they cannot see.

uri http://fastblogit.com/item/1752 did show up in the news this morning. I made careful not to tag anything nor put it in the .groups - it still showed up though as private.

i might be able to put a robots.txt exclusion in the http://fastblogit.com/user directory and that should keep the engines from indexing it.
