Email Links

I have just added a modification that hides all contact information (including email links) from guest users. The main advantage of this is that Internet spiders will not be able harvest our email addresses for spam purposes.

A logged in user can still read your contact information and email you if they wish. The forums are intended as an area for people to discuss and swap information - so I think email should be supported. This hasn't happened yet, but if email is abused by registered members then I can fall back to private messages (PM) only.

The modification required some source code edits, so let me know if you have any problems.
