I nearly tripped up when registering
I didn't complete all the registration form (only the * sections).
It appears that some users have completed all the form.
They may not know this but there is a lot of personal info available (real name).
Can I suggest that if you are concerned then click
Privacy and change the default settings!
Yes clicking on your id gives your e-mail address
For your web site NOT e-mail

You had me worried for a moment
All that info is OK to display for me but the name should not generally show. People know who I am so I'm not personally bothered but I now know the full name of someone who probably ddn't want to share it.
What does concern me is that everyone knows everyone else's login id so that's 50% of the security. Other sites I use let me login with one thing, held my name privately and let the public see my screen name
I'd have replied earlier but this site is sooooooo ridiculously sloooowwwwwwww
BT, To learn how to make a fast web site just see mine
Sorry about that!
I get an occasional slow response. Auto refresh would also help.

I've just sent an email to the mods raising this issue
Thanks DS for sending the email. I was silly enough to think that it would be standard that your email would be protected or you would be advised that it would show, chalk that down as a lesson learned.
but others won't want that to happen to them. I could be anybody!
I just hope they realise and change there settings - (worm, can, open!).
Well it should show the same for myself as I have selected "No One" can view my profile but you do have the option to allow friends etc..
EDIT: I did it because I don't want DS giving/selling away my secrets
