Summary List's my email address

I just joined today. I checked the box that says to hide my email address. When I looked at my Summary a few minutes later, there was my email address. I was able to look at the page where all of that stuff is and the box is STILL checked to Hide my email address. So, what gives? I checked a few other members pages and they ARE hidden. Is it just me? I mean, I can set a spam filter on my email, if necessary, but why should I have to? Is there some other way to hide my email address? I admit I am new here, but it should be pretty straightforward, I would think. I post on many other sites and forums without this problem.

Thank you.

Just guessing, You can still see your e-mail, but others can't

I went to look at your profile and your e-mail is not shown.

The following below is what OTHER people can see

CQ: AIM: MSN: YIM: Email: hidden Website: Current Status:
as you can see, no email is shown :-TU

Wow! Thank you VERY much, Jay. That is a relief. There was no way I could check that. I feel a lot better, now.
