Whenever I am on the Forum, the URL has "! Not secure" to the left of it, and when I am posting, this warning turns from black to red. Is the site safe?

This site is not secure, no. But, that only means that the data is not encrypted (we do not use https) but we also don't store any personal information in the database so it's not an issue. Most forums are not secure sites, there's really no reason for it.

But when people put private info in there postings, those postings do show up on Google searches.

Which is why you shouldn’t. Being secure wouldn’t prevent that, either.
