    Those people who register email adds for user names have probably been caught out by the autofill things that browsers come with these days:RollEyes:

    Most people PM me and get it changed. The last thing you need is your email address on an open forum, we get enough junk as is. :Smile:

    Do people really do this?:whatthe: I suppose they must do, or the thread wouldn't be here - but I just cannot imagine anyone using their email address in this way.:Doh: It always amazes me when people put their private email addresses in a posting, too ... don't they realise the "private message" function is there to protect their privacy?
