I have obfuscated your email address for the following reason:

Spambots are programs that scan web pages for hyperlinks and email addresses, often using subtle algorithms in their search. These malicious programs collect the addresses they find on a page, and then follow each hyperlink they find on it to a new page and repeat the process. Because these programs are very fast, they can cover, however randomly, a lot of webpages in a very short time. The email addresses these programs harvest so diligently may be sold to others many times over, or the spambot program itself may siimply generate SPAM to the addresses and send it out automatically.

For this reason, publicly posting your Email address anywhere on the Web should be avoided, and BC does not allow, consequently, members to use an Email address as a Member name.

Members who have inadvertantly used their address as a name may PM Grinler and provide a substitute name.
