email address in Google

http://discuss.fogcreek.com/FogBUGZ/default.asp?cmd=newmailform&ixPost=3129

I did a search in google for my email address greg.coleson and google found it on your site.  I would prefer my email address not be accessable to search engines.  Can you get this off your site.

Thanks,
Greg

It's not on our site.

Unless google crawls our site with your cookies in its cache :)

I suspect you looked for your name, because a search on your email address on Google turns up 0 hits.  If you searched for your name and found the reply link and hit view source, you'll see your email address there because its IN YOUR COOKIE, so it appears in the Email address.  But it doesn't appear to anyone else. 

For example, when I go to reply, discuss.fogcreek.com uses that cookie to prefill out the Name and Email field with my info.  But that info isn't going to appear to Google on a crawl.

I just tried to get onto my computer and it was floode with COMMEWRCIALS.
If I wanted commercoals, I would have stayed on the TV.

Please do not ask me If I want to buy your commercials.

I just want to run my computer and you will not let me.
I guess I will have to ask the Communications Secretary about it.
