Why are you folks posting your email address in the open? Surely you should know that there are email address collectors on the web just waiting to send SPAM to you!

Where are the e-mail addresses? If you've been on the internet for a while, you know that there is a group of low-life out there that are ready, willing and able to flood your mailbox with huge piles of crap from the sewer of life. They get email addresses from web pages and then proceed to take their daily dump of these so-called advertisements.
At this time, we are operating a hidden email system. You click on a User Name and we offer you a form to enter your name, email address and a message to the person who made the post. You must be logged in to send the email. (No one else can send mail under your name without knowing your password.)
Your identity is sent along with these emails in the form of an IP number that your ISP assigned to you. In the event of abusive use of this system, this number along with the logged date/time information will trace back to you. This is done to prevent junk mail from flowing through this system. If you are in receipt of junk mail through the SmokStak system, let me know and countermeasures will be taken.

If you expose an email address or phone number openly in your posts, profile page or signature, you do so at your own peril!
