I notice that user email addresses are visible to guests;

http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?action=mlist

Which means that data mining bots can get peoples email addresses and add them to spammer's lists, something should be done about his asap. There should be a plugin for smf that will allow the use of a form rather than a mailto link;

I checked the line in smf -
"Do not reveal contact details of members to guests"

Can you please check now?

Thanks.
