Glad to see i'm not the only one.  I also sent an email to Andy and Kristin about the issue.

The blog mentioned in a recent news post is where he probably noticed the site.  He tried to leave a similar comment on the blog entry about Looney Labs (that hasn't been approved).

Glad to know he doesn't have my private email address.  I wasn't sure how the Rabbit Roster messaging worked.
