I am confused, you said they weren't public when they were on a closed site.  then you said they were publicly available.  if it is closed, it isn't publicly available without permission.

Their identity will be protected by a username of their choice, but can I use the real URL and name of their blogs (I would tell them that I'm doing this)? I'm of the opinion that I can because they are publicly-available, but one of my more traditional advisers has doubts. Any thoughts?
