I've just read this interesting article by Bob Rankin in the current PCPitstop e-newsletter. I hope it's permissible to add the link but as usual I've included an XXX:

I took his advice and googled my full btopenworld email address - no results, so I googled my full btinternet one. My email address didn't come up but that of a leading barrister did. Her full email address is shown on her website so I've emailed her a link to the article.

I'm not a computer expert - by any means, as many of you know [;o)] we regularly tell contributors here when they've shown their full email address so being pro-active must be a good idea imho.
