Hidden email address
« on: November 16, 2007, 08:29:08 AM »

Just before registering I had changed nearly all of my email addresses because of the huge amount of spam. It didn't take long before THEY tracked me down again and started the bombing with viagra pills, free lottos, illegal program sales and all that staff.  Only for a short time I had my email adress set not set as hidden. Is there a way these lowlives can get the address now that it's set as hidden?


PS. If I click my name on the left I can see my email address. Is this ok, should I see my own eventhough I have set it to be hidden?

PPS. I can see some folks using their real names. True name with date of birth can be a dagerous combination in the netwilderness these days!

Us mere mortals can't see it it shows up as hidden

Lester, thanks for checking that.

Risto, I can see your email address, but as admin I'd expect to, even when its hidden from the rest of the world.
