As you all know, on July 21st we released a new Facebook code found by member AG on our donor’s board, with plans to release it to our private code board 24 hours later. The morning of July 22nd, before I posted it into our private code board, someone here had already leaked AG’s code to another site. Which then leaked it to an additional site. Lord only knows how many it’s on by now….

For those of you who are not taking the time to analyze the situation, allow me to explain it to you. No one has access to codes at she-geeks unless you are a registered member. Why is this? Because we like to KEEP CODES ALIVE! Requiring registration in order to view the code boards keeps search engines and web spiders from being able to access our codes. If our codes were exposed to Google, what would be the point in having them? Once they’re general knowledge on the net, they are quickly fixed.

Now the person who leaked the code, leaked it to a site that is PUBLIC! This site posted AG’s code in both a PUBLIC BLOG POST, and a PUBLIC FORUM POST. The next lulu that took it from there posted it in a PUBLIC BLOG POST, and a PUBLIC FORUM POST. What you need to understand is that sites that give a damn about their members, and their member’s hard work, do not act irresponsibly to destroy that work. Posting codes in places that are publicly available to search engines is exactly how codes get DESTROYED. Any site that posts codes out in the open could care less about the codes-they are simply looking to raise their SERPS and receive “internet recognition”.

I hope you have taken the time read through this, as it is not just a rant. I hope you have a more thorough understanding now as to why we are so adamant that our members keep our private codes PRIVATE. When you share them around the internet, especially to sites like the ones that posted them on the 22nd, you are effectively working to patch the codes. And that is just NOT FAIR to the people that work so hard to find them, nor to the people who so desperately need to use them.
