Strongly recommend you DO NOT put your email address in a post!

Unless of course you really like spam. Spambots cruise the web looking for email addresses - and you're giving them a gift.

Remove it and people can still contact you by simply clicking your name (of course you can need to enable email in your user control panel) but no one gets your email address until you reply - the system sends the message to you, not them, so they do not have your email address. We try hard to make sure you are as secure as we possibly can!
