    I have just now manually edited that earlier post replacing two "at signs" with the word "at". I normally catch these more quickly, but I am travelling and didn't see this case immediately. If someone views that earlier post from now on, they will see it as you intended.

    Simple solution for your future messages: don't use "at signs". Because of the sensitivity of posting email addresses in public message archives, the NavList archive automatically masks "at signs" and some following text. We could implement a smarter filter, but it happens so rarely that I don't think it's worth the time right now. As a reminder to everyone else, if you DO want to post your email address in a message for others to see, use some trick like replacing the "at sign" by [at] or -at-. Posting full email addresses in publicly visible messages is an invitation to spam. Search engines visit the NavList archive several times per minute looking for new content. Most of these are identifiable and indeed the majority are "Google bots". But some search engines do not identify themselves and many of these are malicious code, looking for software vulnerabilities and also harvesting email addresses and any other personal information they can find.

    If anyone (any NavList member or visitor) has any technical concerns about NavList messages, you can email me for prompt personal service at Frank[at]ReedNavigation.com or FrankReed[at]HistoricalAtlas.com.
