(Question) Protected: Forbidden Colours

by CARLOSPEJUAN

Does anyone know what this post is all about? It reads similar to:

Password:Darvin This content is password protected. To view it please enter your password below: Password:

Just curious, not really trying to start stuff. If admins are not ok with this or I should mind my business, it’s cool.

It means that the user who created the post (Darvin) has set it so a person requires a password to read it. The user sets the password, only they know it, and any others they give the password to will know it. I think people make such posts because they only want certain people to read them.

On that note, I don’t really know why they choose to do that, why don’t they just email what they wrote to people they want to share that stuff with….?

Because sometimes people don’t always send the passwords to other people. Sometimes it’s nice to write a post and publish it without anyone reading it, and yes sometimes they may choose to share a password with others, but excluding or including others isn’t the main point. And even if it is sometimes an email may not be the best communication for certain topics, if someone wants a type of separation.
Alternatively, people can write something then put a pass on it later because they don’t want it to be read at that point, but they don’t want to completely hide it either.

Far as I know. I’ve made password posts without sharing the key.
