    This is particularly bad if your forum automatically feeds twitter / facebook accounts

    There is no moderated forum I can use here to demonstrate this, but simply
    * post a thread to a Moderated forum
    * Don't approve it
    * Check the RSS feed

    It shows the title of the thread, and if this is automatically sent to twitter/facebook without allowing moderation, it doesn't look too great

    (imagine your face book / twitter being flooded with ... "Xforum is Y", or "the owner of XForum is a Y"), and that could effectively come from your own account (to all of your followers!)

    that's not true;)

    you have permissions, that's why you see it in the feed too...
    people (and/or bots without permissions) won't see them.

    easy to confirm: create the thread, log and and check your feed;)

    Is that an add-on you are using to post to Twitter?

    As ragtek said, the RSS feed respects the permissions.
