Under Account Related Settings, I have it checked to NOT show my email address so what's going on?

DavidR - I do have Firefox with NoScript, but had never seen the RequestPolicy before. I have installed it. Now is this something that will just run in the background when I have my browser open or do I have to so something to enable?

The RequestPolicy is very like NoScript (the add-on is running), in that it doesn't allow any cross site contact (the site you are on connecting to another site via a script). So you have to allow sites to do this in the same way you have to allow them with NoScript. However, this for many is a step too far as it is more intrusive as sites often have multiple scripting connections to other sites.

For me I don't find that much hassle, but at times it can take time to select what sites you want to allow as this requires an amount of knowledge about what sites to allow and want to leave blocked.

Thanks DavidR. I don't mind an extra step or two for safety's sake so I'll try it for a while.

What I'm concerned about right now is my email showing public, and wondering if it's always been that way. I sure didn't mean for it to be and as I said, I do have the box checked to not make my email public. Please help me get this reversed altho it's probably a bit late now.  >:(

I think Gargamel360 was responding to the post directly before his (on the previous page), not yours, e.g. Salty_Walty but he has now taken care of that aspect.

You're welcome.

Your email isn't showing, only you and moderators can see it. See my last post as I don't believe the comment was directed at you.

Edit: now confirmed Gargamel360, always a problem when the topic take a new page and you aren't aware that it is about to do that, 15 posts (OP +14) per page).
