thanks for taking part in webdesign problems. For me it's ok to do it
also here on the list, in parallel to the wiki.
You can access the given emails by clicking on the yellow pencil
("edit") in the upper right corner of each posting.
It is easy to make the emails visible in the posting, but we didn't do
this for purpose:. The reason for not showing is the spam-problem. The
longer you have your email adress visible to robots the better they can
collect your email and send spam to it. If ppl check the checkbutton
"Notify me ...." while posting, they will get automatic emails from the
tool even if their email is not visible to human beings or robots. PPl
who want to give their email in a visible form can post it in the body
or description field.
