I got this back from the person who e-mailed me (Note that for security I have added x's to the address and 9's to the IP address):
"This is what shows up in the Comment:
Thanks for alerting me to this anomaly as I will have to figure out how to protect both Nick and me from the same … Note that it even shows your ISP address! I don’t believe this is shown publicly, but can’t be sure.
There must be a way of masking the email and ISP, unless you must be public to post a comment. Maybe you could ask the WordPress techies."
We are both WordPress members and I did not check follow the conversation by e-mail. Even if I get a random e-mail it lists my IP Address??!!??
teamoyeniyi you are right - when I look to manage my comments I can see everyone's e-mail and IP address. I will likely stop commenting on people's blogs unless there is a way I can hide both of these.
