Default Not sure of the risk of giving emails

Hi Rob and Hanno

I'm not sure of the real risk in having an email address in plain text or even as a live linked address shown on MLU . I've had an open shown/linked email at the bottom of every one of my post on MLU for years.

It was an address I created for just that purpose to publicly post and on my web site, so far after several years of use I have not seen an increase in spam e-mails.

Only two categories of e-mails have increased:
  • Chinese companies wanting to sell or make stuff for me because of the .com suffix of the address.
  • People wanting help on joining or contacting MLU sending me e-mails because my e-mail address was out in the open.
The one thing I would suggest is create a new e-mail just for the purpose that way if there is a problem can just close that address down.

Thanks Phil.

FYI: at the bottom of each forum page there is a "Contact us" button which enables anyone to send MLU an email.
