Not a bug Moderated Forums display unapproved thread posts vis RSS feed

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.
