Has anyone else been receiving odd email notifications about random postings here and there?

I've appended one below and also tried attaching a screencap, although I don't expect that to work.

Hi Noel,

That's not an email notification - that's an email sent to you by another user regarding a specific thread. (The option to do this is listed in the "Actions" box, and is called "Send as email").

If you look at the screen shot, this is being sent to you by Barro-THX.

Hope that helps.

Well, you already have an answer and are therefore no longer able to edit your original message, regardless of my replying again. Although this is not a reply, but a question.

Are you aware that you have made public your email address?

I tried to send a "Report Abuse" with Private Information selected while suggesting a Host might be able to change the email addresses to somebody@example.com (example.com was created for such purposes). But it wouldn't go through. Just a non-descriptive error.

If somebody with such powers reads this, then...

Thanks to all of you for your concern. Gmail insists on at least six characters for an email user name, so that's not a real

address. As a diehard NNTP user, I rarely visit the forums and hadn't noticed the 'send as email' feature. An identity I use for

testing just happens to be the first on the list of what look to be over 160,000 registered users, and I didn't even try to achieve

that position.

I do hope you and John have got more important things to do than spend time sanitizing posts

I usually recommend using example.com anyway, just to save some innocent server from getting tons of spam mails - valid address or not.

I wasn't aware of the six character limit, thanks.

In this case, I don't mind one bit if the spammers start bombing google with the invalid email address. Google is the primary source of Usenet spam and they don't seem to care about it, so I won't either.
