To reiterate Geoff's point... the web forum is setup not to show e-mail 
addresses by default, if you want it to be available you have to change 
the profile setting yourself.

All this talk about spam is pointless.  Moaning at people for the tools 
they use is just a waste of time.

Some people like mailing lists, some like web fora.

Just leave it at that!
