I just received a email from someone on my personal email claiming they found my profile on this site. Question to Admin; How did they get my personal email from my profile? I cant even see it. They know enough to let me know they did get it from this site. The biggest point they told me they did.....
Has anyone else received a email about a tv show?

On your account the default position is to allow members to email you direct, it does not display your email IN your profile though. It isn't dubious or scammy.

You actually need to go into your account and manually switch it off.

They did not write me on this site. So I did not reply to them on this site. They got my email that I used to set up my account with on this site and emailed me there.

Hi Chris

If you go to any members profile and click the "Contact" tab on their profile you will get our "in site mail" form. That form will show your email as the email "from" sender but in the "to" box it only shows the members name, not their email.

When someone sends you an email using the contact tab they do not see your email only your user name, but the email will go to the address you set the account up with.

Email address here are visable to only myself and the other two owners unless a member includes it in the "about me" section.

The other thing we have here are the "private messages" which are different than the "in site mail" form.

I hope this helps explain how you received the email. Rest assured even tho the address you used to set the account up received the email, the sender only saw your user name.

Ok thanks. Just never had anyone else send a email that went to mine.

Other members can contact you by default which can be set to off. They can not see your email unless you directly reply back to them at which point it will show up.

If you feel the email was spam, let me know and i'll look in to the member who sent it.

Drop me a line if you have any other questions.
