    access an unpublished diary?

    as to the question of deleted and cached, i can see arguments for and against, so i'll go with whatever the admins say.

      but on a few occasions I've written a diary, sometimes spending a couple of hours writing it, and after publishing it and re-reading it I realized that I don't like the way it came out, and I go ahead and unpublish it, or delete it.  Out of the almost 500 diaries I've written I may have done that maybe 6 or 7 times (if my memory serves me right).

        •  Yes, but as we all know, titles aren't always (0+ / 0-)

          accurate.  And are their requirements as to how many characters you can use in a title?

          More precisely the title should have read:

          So I guess you didn't read the diary.
