The vast majority of messages in the RSS feeds are identified as being "posted by forums@adobe.com". Rarely the poster's email address is given. Would it be possible to make this latter behaviour the default?

If people have set their email address as private in their forum profile

the RSS feed should respect that. I do believe it would be a reasonable

alternative to provide a decorated email address instead of a canonical

email address, i.e. "Jochem van Dieten <forums@adobe.com>".

Yes, that's reasonable and a good suggestion.

Gets my vote too.  I've switched from NNTP to RSS without loud complaint, but I would at least like to know who I'm reading.

Don't you think that those with a poster's address are submitted by email

(like this one), the rest posted at the forum site?

But in the RSS feed your message was attributed to forums@adobe.com. So I think not.

If I view my post as fed by RSS into IE7, this is what I see.

Do you get something different?
