great - that's good to know. That does create a problem for someone trying to figure out if their email addresss is hidden (some places have a "view your profile as others see it option")
Also, someone told me that they couldnt see the envelope icon near my name, which I assume also means that my email is hidden (hopefully!). So, if someone views my profile and sees my email, let me know, and I will let the administrators know!
Thanks to all who helped me out!
