The evil 'email' button :(





Daniel15
Well, I've started to get more and more spam to my main email account (with my ISP, tpg.com.au). I was trying to figure out how my email address got on to spam lists, as I only use this email address for things I know I won't get any spam with.

After looking for ages, I realised what it was: Underneath every post on this forum, there is an 'email' button, which has a link to email address of the poster of that topic! That stupid email button gave my email address away Evil or Very Mad . I've changed my email address here to my spam email address (the one I get ~20 spams per day to), but I suggest that we remove that evil button, for protection of member's email addresses

I suppose it's not that bad... I enabled the email filter (they use a modified version of SpamAssasin, which is absolutely brilliant) and I don't get spam anymore Smile

It's because you are a moderator that's why you are seeing it.

Otherwise, make sure - Always show my e-mail address: - is not checked.

Oh, OK. I didn't know that. I haven't really seen these forums as a regular member, or as a guest Wink
