The real email address is used for email notifications and forum subscriptions and to email your password. The other is what other users see when they view your profile. We realize that some people don't want everyone to know their normal email address, but we need to know it in case you want to subscribe to a forum or if you want to have replies emailed to you. For this reason you can give us your real email address that only we will see and you can provide a different one for the general public. Some people like to put in something like [email protected] This way people can still figure out what your real email address is, but spamming agents can't just parse through the page and spam you.

another way, is to replace the "@" sign with the words "at" and the dot, before the domain, with the word, "dot"

For instance, I am jennieatifishdotnet.
