How to hide my personal e-mail address?
« on: June 23, 2014, 10:45:09 PM »
Hi guys. . . I'd like to hide my personal e-mail address from my posts.  Advice please.  I'm probably going to say to myself "Duh" once someone's told me what to do  :)

You can hide your e-mail address from public view:

Click on Profile

Click on 'Account Related Settings'

Check 'Hide email address from public.'

That's all there is to it.   :)

If you go to change your profile using the link in the bar towards the top of the page, on the left you will see an option for "Account Related Settings." Just go in there and check the box next to "Hide email address from public?" and you'll be set. Your email will still be visible when you view your profile, and also visible to the mods (I think) and admins, but will be invisible to everyone else.

I was thinking no way in regard to mods. I have not been arrested, no one has asked me out on a date, etc. But it appears that I am wrong:
