It's not really a major issue, but Private Conversation titles aren't as private as they could be.

They show up in anything which tracks URLs, e.g. referrer logs, company proxies.

As Private Conversations aren't going to benefit from SEO, it isn't really necessary to include the title in the URL.

for the bots, you can add http://xenforo.com/community/conversations/ to the don't crawl list in robots.txt :)
He didn't mention bots, nor can they crawl conversations anyway as registration and permissions are required.

This is a good suggestion.

Therefore, I have made it into an add-on ;)
