A quick note about how anonymity works on this site.
First and foremost, at no time are email addresses made available to other members in the community.
When a user first registers on this site, their user profile is set to public. This means that, from a public perspective, ideas, comments and votes are made under the users public profile name. Other users on the site will be able to see the poster's username or custom avatar. If a user wishes for their username and avatar to be anonymous to the general public, the user may do so by changing the setting in the "Profile" menu item in the upper right menu on the website.
By making their profile public, a user may customize their name and avatar. The email address used to register with the site will not be made public.
