Emails in your public profile - removal suggested

Unfortunately we see some potential spammer activity where somebody is going through profiles systematically, looking for emails.

I therefore recommend you remove email addresses in your public profile.

Most people here don’t have them showing anyway – it is just a small proportion.

Note this is not the login email; that is not visible to anyone but admins.

Please disregard this thread.

I have discovered that those emails are in fact NOT visible to non logged in users The only potentially useful contact detail visible is the “personal website” one, which only a few people have configured.

There must have been a software change at some point because originally that email was visible to anyone and I recall a discussion about it.

So, no action required, which I am always pleased about

I think in light of this the above advice is probably not ideal…

We’ve also had long-term forum members harvesting email addresses.
