I noticed that since I registered I seem to get logged in automatically when I arrive at the site, e.g. it shows me which topics have new posts

I seemed to have to turn Cookies on for this site on my computer in order to post, is this right, as I would rather not have to do this

Also, how does it work if a user logs on to the site on someone else's computer or in a public place like an internet cafe - could the next person see your username/password?

Try going to preferences and setting the radio button to no. That should log you out when you close the browser.
