Simply put: Because there are still things I don’t want everyone to know, or at least not in the way I describe these things. Some things are too embarassing. And I’m an oversharer.
However, if you directly ask me for the password, there is a good chance I’ll give it to you.
I cannot give you the password if you are currently my student. You’ll have to wait.
By the way, the protected posts get the most hits, even though very few people have the password.
It’s also revealing how many people try to fish for the password, without simply asking me.
Were people always this scared to simply ask for something or have we involved that way?
