Why the usernames of a closed forum appear in Google?

Spooky2 forum uses phpBB software. This software shows the Portal page with the actual online forum members before you have to log in. So Google, and other searching bots have access to that information. If you want to not appear in the searchable Portal page, simply log in as hidden. The downside is that nobody except Mods and Admins is going to see you.

To Log in as hidden, go to User control Panel, then in Board Preferences choose Hide my online status.
