I signed up today, from what I've seen so far I really like it and think I may well dump AdSense for it.

I'm using wordpress and it sticks my email address in the page. Anyone know why? Seems like it will invite even more spam.

Don't worry Iolaire, it doesn't actually.

What it does is to output the email address of the user browing the site (if it knows it) so the only person to whom it will reveal your email address is you. I imagine it does it so it can identify unique users better, especially as it is designed to work on lots of different blogging systems.

<?php
global $userdata;
if ($userdata) {
   echo "z_user_name="" . $userdata->display_name . "";n";
   echo "z_user_email="" . $userdata->user_email . "";n";
}
?>

Means that if there is data for the current user, output it.
