Only members can get her email from her posts, right? I haven't gotten anything like that, either.

Could be a tracking cookie. Meaning some other website, malware, or whatever is tracking the websites you visit and used one you visited the most. They usually do simple stuff like this, trying to lure idiots to their website.

Could be you had this site open in a tab or window and visited another site that got what other pages were open. The info that sites can get just by you simply going to the website is amazing.

I'd run Malwarebytes or similar to eliminate anything there. Delete all of or go through your cookie list, too. But you know this stuff.

No, anyone going through can grab email addresses. I just tried it. I logged out then went to general chat. I could see anyone's email address than had it visible.

I think I hide mine long time ago. So no one can contact me outside of site.

well the e-mail I have here is not my real e-mail address so I don't care if they posted me. But I thought I should let people know. :)
If I am the only one who got that, don't worry you all.
