Email addresses are correctly hidden when logged in, but visible to guests. « on: November 13, 2020, 09:54:46 AM » Author: HPS_250
This bug seems to have started happening within the last few days. When I am logged into this site, all members who have hidden email addresses do not have visible email addresses. However, when I log out of the site, I can view the email address of any member by clicking on the “mail” icon below their profile photo. From what I can tell, this means that any guest can view any member’s email while the bug is active. Could it be fixed? Thank you for any help.

I’ve always been interested in all kinds of lighting, mainly incandescent and HID, and especially all kinds of sodium lamps (HPS/LPS). I’ll tolerate LED but I’m not a fan of it.
I’m not proud to say that my city has Devolved to LED.

That needs to be corrected as quickly as possible, spammers like the one I got a few days ago might exploit that bug for their spam.  @-@

I agree, spam mail is never good. I got a spam email for something called “LED Balloon Tower light” a few days ago.

Coincidence! I also got an LED related spam.  :poof:

After discovering that exploit all they need to do is to add a little script to their existing auto-spammer, that automatically connects data from Google and other sites with trackers.

I'll recommend all you to keep your use of Google services as a minimal.

Sorry about that, we overlooked it during testing.  The 'hide_email' property name had changed, and I missed updating the gallery profile which reads it.  Since 'hide_email' was no longer set, it began showing email all the time.  I've switched it to use the new property.

Yes when talking about email SPAM sucks but back in high school I used to fry up some SPAM and cut it into pieces and put them into a bowel of ramen noodle soup that was very tasty (and also UN-healthy) ramen noodle soups were a lot cheaper 19 years ago (8 for $1 not the 3-4 for $1 like now) they also had a lot more flavor variety back then.
