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.
