I Installed Discourse with my personal email account, as i’m sure a lot of people did. I wasn’t aware that Discourse exposes this email to the not-logged-in publicly. Looking at Discourse installation in the login page, i simply check the page source to see the emails. For example:
https://discuss.pytorch.org/ -> email@example.com
https://meta.discourse.org/ -> firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to have the option to not disclose my email in plain sight. However, if that is impossible for some reason, at the very least I think people should be aware of that and choose so dedicated email account for setting up Discourse.
I now realize that it could be easily changed in settings!
However, I still believe it shouldn’t expose the email by default… or perhaps ask for the admin preference in the installation process
