Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I logged out of the Fitness.se site, cleared my cache and, look, I am on it but not logged in. Just to let you know the site is in private beta for two more days.

On the Fitness.SE site in private beta after clearing the cache!

I click on meta not logged in, and I can still see the site.

Try clearing your cookies... – Shog9 Mar 6 '11 at 0:00
    
@Shog9 I did but I can still see every page. – Benny Mar 6 '11 at 0:07
    
It may be this issue, check out Kevin's answer: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/62830/… – Pëkka Mar 6 '11 at 0:40
    
Keep in mind that "private" betas are still world readable via the API. – badp Mar 6 '11 at 9:29

We don't use cookies to secure this site due to the number of calories that are in a cookie. We will however allow access to those who have an over abundance of calories.

But those are probably not the "expert audience" the site is craving for? I can see your point about the cookies, though. (Although you can work wonders calorie-wise by restricting them to certain sub-directories and limiting expiry time.) – Pëkka Mar 6 '11 at 7:02

You didn't actually clear your cache (both HTML 5 local storage and cookies) all the way. If you did, you would not have access.

When I log in with IE9, then

  1. log out using the "Log Out Everywhere" button

  2. clear my cache via Tools | Delete Browsing History

.. I indeed lose access to the private beta. You will too.
