This forum gives away your email address
« on: January 15, 2011, 02:14:53 am »
I have a new email address from hotmail.com.  I've used it one time.  That's here on this forum.

In my inbox I have a welcome email and some junk message from becky.almquist@gmail.com.  

Do the math.

Please remove my user account from the database as the forum was less then helpful and actually gave away my personal information.

interesting.
Those people who tell you not to take chances, they are all missing what life's all about.

there is a checkbox in your profile preferences for if it should display your email address on your profile page or not. it is not our fault if you chose not to disable that option.
