Nonpublished (singular user) and nonpublic (plural users) are similar
in that they don't appear on open indexes till published (or leaked).
Depending on where a public note is posted and its context, it can
take from days to months for that onion to be added to public lists.
Some of them never make it to the indexes, particularly if they're
posted deeper than the typical crawler can reach.
