Yes they can. They just have to click on your name.

They just can't post in or start new threads. They can't private message you either.

This is one of the reasons email addresses are not displayed in the profile. Since guests can view the profile, this prevents your email address from being harvested by spammers.

Nobody can view your private messages except you (and the server admin, which is me).

Guests are also only allowed to send messages vis the E-mail links if they can identify the text in an image, to prevent spam.

That's your own fault for listing your MSN ID.

Filmman, if you're asking if you can send a PM to a guest, the answer is no. Who would you send it to if they don't have a username?

Yes. Why do you think I fall asleep from boredom half the time I'm logged in here?

"Viewing Private MEssages" doesn't mean they are looking in YOUR private messages. It means they're trying to view the private message page and are seeing an error message because they're not logged in.
