Email Icon
« on: May 23, 2008, 06:19:17 AM »
On my replies, I noticed I can see a small envelope icon and passing my cursor over it shows my email address on
the bottom of my browser.

Which means anyone can download a page and parse the HTML for that icon and harvest email addresses.

Or is my email address concealed like the IP feature ?

I get enough spam as it is, last thing I want is my email shown.

If you have disabled show email address on your profile page, then only you will be able to see it.
