Back in the old days, when you first joined, it might have been possible for a program to "scrape" your email address off the forums. Any program that could read HTML could find email addresses embedded in our pages. For the past several years, however, that has been pretty much impossible. Click on the email icon in my post, for example, and you'll be taken to a form where you can send a message -- but at no time do you, or any scraping program, get to see my email address. The only way to get my address is to send me a message and hope I'll respond to it from that address. That's also, of course, the only way for anyone from here to get yours.
