E-mail address scrounger bots!

I only make my e-mail address open on forums that require membership to read the posts, IE something that search engines and the like cannot farm for addresses.

Yeah, to keep spam down as much as possible is the main reason.

Considering the quantity of BS I have to wade through to get to my E-Mail I appreciate that you do it in this fashion.

JVL just send a private message to the people that you're looking up, and have them send their email address to you via private message.

Problem solved !
