I wanted to take a moment to address some concerns about your email address and their visibility on the ImmortalGeisha.com forums.
The base forum settings is set to this:
Hide e-mail addresses: YES
This function keeps e-mail addresses completely private.
So while you may have your personal settings set for your email address to be public on the forums, the base forum settings OVERRIDE
this and renders ALL email addresses of ALL members hidden from members and guests. It has been set to this for a very long time and was done to prevent people from harvesting email addresses for spam or trolling purposes.
This setting has been tested multiple times and ways - with each result being that your email address is hidden. Receiving Unsolicited Emails
If you ever receive unsolicited emails from a member, former member or someone who isn't registered on the forums and you believe the only way they could have received your email address is from the ImmortalGeisha.com forums, it is vitally important
that you contact us ASAP and forward us a copy of the email. It would be best to contact us directly through: immortalgeishamembership at gmail dot com
The reason for this is that the only way these addresses could have been obtained is through illegal means - such as someone hacking into the forum administration area or the database (unless you either personally told the person, or made your email address visible in your signature or a post). With any potential breech of security, we need to investigate immediately, contact our hosting provider along with any other additional organizations legal or ISP related that may need to be contacted.
If you have any questions or concerns with regards to any of this information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
