"Mr Rancher",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

"arjuna",

Bear wrote quite specifically that a first name and a last name are required. Please change you name so that it conforms to the policy.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Does the URL /secret actually resolve to something valid?
