Note that if your name is not public someone wanting to send you email
knowing only your name (but not your handle) will not find you in our
database. The extra box is for things like home page URL's,
professional interests, and hobbies. Only your handle, the
extra box and the boxes you click on after "public" will be made
available to those searching in our database. Those box names
preceded with an x if selected will make this information :available
for use in external mailing lists, etc. No other information
you provide will be made available (except in the case of legal
entanglements). Selecting no-email means you will get no e-mail
from here, and thus no way to be notified of responses to your
postings. Your e-mail address will be visible to others who
visit this page if and only if the email box is selected.
