Been there, done that. We aren't openly accepting members, anyway. We only accept applications of those with a referral from a current member.
The pages that are hidden are for members only for a reason. We care about protecting our members' privacy -- their information and our inner-workings are the only things hidden. There's no need for those that are not a member to see our ranking systems, member awards, merch, or memberships. We have our CoC (even though people copy and paste it for themselves) and an About Us page for those interested (those who have a referral, I mean).
