It'd be cool to have password protected links so we could put up MP3s without the RIAA shipping us to Guantanamo.

Would the "protected" status be sufficient password protection? I was thinking about this after I found my that my Joe Frank post showed up on google.

I guess that would work. I was really thinking something that would check if you had a login cookie and pass if you did, but we would need to add a button to back office for that to work... and that would require figuring out how the plugin api works and I'm not sure I care.

Your idea is probably better.

Actually...

Even if the posts were protected, the stuff in the media directory could still be hot linked from off site... and then the RIAA would come knocking and badness would happen.

Bah.
