Description Schnargel 2007-08-26 19:56:43 UTC
I receive spam to this email address that I don't use for anything else.

I would like to have my email address hidden from at least anyone who is not logged in here.
Comment 1 Casey Brown 2007-08-26 20:01:41 UTC
Duplicate, but if you don't use this e-mail for anything else, why do you care if you get spam on it?

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 9872 ***
Comment 2 Schnargel 2007-08-26 20:13:34 UTC
Because I don't want spam? Because I don't want so set up filters when not necessary? Because I don't want to confirm more auto spam filtering? Because other sites are capable of hiding email addresses?
Comment 3 Casey Brown 2007-08-26 20:20:11 UTC
Your quarrel is with the bugzilla software, not us.
Comment 4 Schnargel 2007-08-26 20:23:32 UTC
I was just answering your question. And I did read the other bug. Thank you.
Comment 5 Danny B. 2007-08-26 22:22:45 UTC
If you don't use this email address for anything else, why don't you simply enable filter like "if mail is from keep else throw away"?

I know, and I was just commenting on everything. :-)
Comment 7 Majorly 2007-08-26 23:08:08 UTC
Users who comment here should not be subjected to spam. It's simply doing what most websites do with email addresses and muddling them up so spambots can't get them.
