Guys - you're currently pushing an identifiable e-mail address to the world for all our users ... which they're not very happy about. Is it possible to remove this information or to display alternate information - such as a user name?



REDBUBBLE - Since when do you think it is a good idea to publish my email, address on this or any other forum.

I do not want my personal email to be exposed to all the scammers, confidence tricksters which have infiltrated RB in the past and probably in the present and in the future.

Now I have to deal with them not just in my Bubblemail box, but also in my "personal" email address box. I choose to whom I wish to share my email address with and that should not be Redbubble. Hence we are all using a username.

    I see that you have ... if you set a tender_name cookie we can display that instead of their email.

    Is the tender_name cookie authenticated (added to the hmac)?

    tender_name isn't recognized yet, but go ahead and start sending it from your tender sso cookies. I've replaced the email domains with anonymous, so this shouldn't be a privacy issue.
