Notice: Adding Gmail Links To Public Bookmarks Displays Your Full Email Address

If you like to sync your bookmarks with public bookmarking services like Delicious or Google Bookmarks, here's a word to the wise: don't add a bookmark linking to an email within your Gmail inbox.

Because email addresses are added to the title of the page when you bookmark something in your Gmail inbox, your email address then becomes publicly available on the public bookmarking site. It then becomes prime target for spam bots and for Google cache, with the potential of your email address being scattered all over the interwebs forever.
