      I got this too. I did post my email on a ASP Riveria Maya forum about a week ago.

        I don't think I have posted my email anywhere, except for when I signed up for the forum, which is not public. So I am a little concerned because I don't want any hackers to get my email address and start harassing everyone in my address book!

          its mainly from people who post asking for downloads/pics to be emailed to them or those in the buy/sell forum...instead of using the pm system, they will post their email address.

          not true...you did post your email in one of the buy/sell threads.

                if you post your email on the internet, you can't be too surprised to get people stealing it!  instead i'd suggest just setting your profile to get an email when you get a PM, that way you don't have to post your email address on the forum..
