    Are posts viewable if someone searches for our email address in Google? I worry about posting due to this.

    Im just going to "bump" this because I know it's been an issue here before.

    Im not admin but as far as Im aware posts that you make here are not identifiable because you are writing them under your forum name, not your email address.

    Of course if people choose to include their email address in one of their posts, for example if someone is looking for a penfriend and they give their address as a point of contact, then it would be seen by anyone accessing the site.

    Im sure that I have seen info somewhere that reminds people not to put their email addy on the public forums but to use the Private Message function instead.

    If I have got it wrong, one of the admin will correct me.

    Bluebottle - if you put your email address in your post then yes it will be visible. Otherwise no.

    So Ladybird is right in what she says.

    Sorry i'm bumping it also so that people will understand my reply to a member who posted about wanting to end it all. I hope my reply didnt offend, as i'm new and felt bad saying it, but I have to agree with the rules on this one. So hope others will understand my reply too.
