How open do we want our wiki to be?

"On the one hand, the wiki is nice as a way to keep personal data, like phone numbers, or to air grievances we would not knowingly share with the outside world.

I personally lean to having a wiki which is openly viewable to outsiders, but not having it show up on Google searches, and not having it be editable by non-members."
