A Humble Request

Movable Type comes preconfigured (I think) to require an email address when a comment is posted. That’s all fine. I don’t mind giving my email address to the owner of the site I’m commenting on. Unfortunately, MT is also preconfigured to display the address I gave alongside my comment. That’s not cool. Now spiders will harvest these sites and spam me. So, I humbly ask that my Movable Typing friends edit their templates and rebuild their archives. Or at least provide a warning so I don’t make the mistake of commenting on their site. Thanks.
