After a couple months using Thematic I've just realised that in the authors archive (that's "/author/username/") the email address of the author is public. I've been looking for a way to disable this behaviour but apparently there's none. I've even found this snippet on wp-themes.com while looking for a solution:
"Thematic currently has three options that can be set from the Theme Options panel under Design: Index Insert Position, Info on Author Page and Text in Footer."
but alas, there's no Theme Options panel that I know of.
Is there any reasoning for this behaviour/"feature"? Is there any way to disable it?
