For the benefit of those who are new to this blog and those who are still not clear about the password-protected posts, I will explain to you how it works.
First off: why am I keeping some blog entries protected?
One, I am protecting the people involved from probable malicious media reports which could easily be drawn from the contents of those entries. Personally, I wrote those just for entertainment purposes. However, and we have all seen this before, the media could easily twist information they read on the internet just so they could write something about a famous celebrity. I don’t want to end up being the source of rumors that could hurt my favorite stars.
Two, some entries have dealt with really sensitive issues that not everyone will understand.
Three, some entries are really personal that I’d rather limit the access to people I personally know and trust, or the person being talked about in those entries himself.
I am currently using 3 passwords to protect certain posts.
First password – used in posts which are not deemed too personal or too ‘dangerous’ to be shared to majority of the visitors of this blog. These posts contains mainly my own analysis of things related to the Bi and S0ng Hye Kyo tandem, and are written mainly to entertain myself and the Bi-Kyo fans. In short, these are figments of my own imagination, based on published material about them. So actually, the media would be stupid if they would use those for their articles, but then again, if someone is desperate…
But why am I putting a password if those are just written for entertainment purposes? Some people believe anything they read on the internet. If I make it available to the general public, it will easily be misunderstood as confirmed news no matter how many times I stress that it is not.
Level of security: mild to moderate
Who has access: Anyone who is a regular visitor of this blog who properly introduced themselves to me and have convinced me that they are not members of the press posing as Bi-Kyo fanatics.
Second password: Used in posts which tackled more sensitive topics. Not purely a figment of my imagination, but have some basis. NOTE: not all these posts dealt with Bi-Kyo, although they have something to do with Rain.
Level of security: moderate
Who has access: People whom I already know either personally or via the internet (meaning, I have known them for quite sometime already and have trusted them enough to give them access to more sensitive topics).
Third password: Used in posts currently marked “Restricted Post No. ___”. Contents shall not be released to the public for now.
Level of security: Extremely high.
Who has access: Me, a small group of trusted people, and if they will ask for it (and I really pray they will), a couple of Korean entertainers.
If any of these three passwords don’t work on a certain post, it means the contents are highly personal and is only accessible to me and the person concerned (just to pacify the curious cats: those have NOTHING to do with Bi-Kyo, so don’t even bother).
