All items are public (published) by default. That is conventional now on the blogosphere. There are very fue places that even have the ability to make private items, Flickr is an exception. I think people expect it to be that way.

However, as soon as someone clicks that an item is private, then any edits to that item will default to private. (That this is not happening now is a .1bug)

You will have the ability to designate that all items created in your group default to private. To publish from such a group to the external world you will need to intentionally unclick the private box. (This feature is on the .1wish list )

--- Mark's Proposal ----
The default of private for postings in a private tag group should be made. We lost this request somewhere along the way. The first time a customer gets suprised by an item showing up in the common stream he/she/it will lose confidence there. The whole idea of a private tag group needs a real good FAQ to explain same.

As what i am proposing to do is not what Mark proposes that i do, i'll leave this on the bug queue pending further discussion.

Seth says
As to faq writeups, I think the best way is to write the faq question in the title of an item and tag the item "faq" and perhaps give it an intention "tobe answered"

Mark de LA says
i am good for your proposal once this .1wish item is accomplished
