Google indexing email addresses here
« on: December 30, 2004, 10:46:25 AM »
Hey Mitch, I noticed that my email adress recently came up in the site search results for december, I know the security of my email andusername were compromised recently, would it perhaps be possible to make the email addresses of users not indexed for search engines?

Thanks.

under use profile, tick "hide your email". as long your email won't be displayed publicly, the google search daemon won't be able to record your email address.

I want people to be able to contact me here, if needed, I just dont want people to be able to enter my email address as a search term, and be led to my account here.

They can use the in house messenger if they need to talk to you. That's what I use, just keep your email address hidden thats the only way.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
