How do i make sure my email is not seen?

  1. I know it can be seen because somebody referred to me by my email name when responding to a comment i posted on their blog. I thought my email was supposed to be hidden and private. Please help.

    The blog I need help with is itseasiernottodoit.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi irenebercou,

    I think this might help, specifically the Privacy section: http://en.support.wordpress.com/email-address/

    You would need to be logged out of your account to not have your email attached to the comment. Depending on the blogger's settings, they might not allow users who aren't signed in to comment.

  3. @ibercou,

    Also note that your email address is not publicly viewable except to the site owner (when you comment while logged in to your WordPress.com account).

    The usual etiquette when a blog owner replies to a comment is to use the commenter's username or nickname (as I did here), but it sounds like the site you commented on did not follow the polite protocol. You could try contacting that person to ask him or her to remove the personal information from your comment.
