Notification emails being sent with real names instead of usernames?

I answered somebody's question yesterday and apparently he was sent the notification email in both my username (Quriouss) and also my real name & email addressI was under the impression that this was not supposed to happen.  Could somebody confirm this is the correct behaviour?

Here is the message I received from a user;  Re: My quest for the best way to visualize figures on different scales

And here are my Privacy settings;

I doubt that this is how it should work, IMHO I wouldn't want it to work like this.

Maybe ahw‌ can look at this, maybe it's connected some recent community profile changes?

Re: Notification emails being sent with real names instead of usernames?

Hi,

I just want to add one thing - I am getting such emails.

They are all sent by qcwebmaster, so there are no personal email_adresses in there, but there surely are real names - just now I got two emails in the same minute about answers in the same thread - I could find a post by the user (username), but I didn't find the real name, so I guess that must have been the real name of that user.

Best regards,

DataNibbler

If you've got a Germanic-sounding name then I can see your name too.  Not good.

The first email is the "you have received a reply" message - this is sent with the real name of the user from the address qcwebmaster@qlikview.com.

The second email is a copy of the actual answer, sent with the username of the user, and from the same email address qcwebmaster@qlikview.com

Oops - no, not good. Yes, I do have such a name as I am German. I don't see too much harm in it in this particular instance, but in general, I don't like to throw my personal information around more than necessary.

Hi,

I wonder, is anyone looking at this? We have a mayor data_protection_issue here. Does anyone care about that?

Re: Notification emails being sent with real names instead of usernames?

I was just thinking the same thing (and it's *still* happening).  I don't know how to report this to a particular person, so I'm just going to tag Andy and Sara again to see if they can do anything;

Hi,

the only other option I can think of is flagging this as abuse. Of course this is not abusive, but that way I guess some of the admins are going to see it.

But let us first wait and see whether the people you have tagged will react.

Best regards,

P.S.: It is happening - and for some others, though not everyone - only, from other users, I get two simultaneous emails with the same name - so there must be some personal setting involved, too

Just bumping this thread to see if we can get some attention. (Sorry for including you, Michael - but at least you're active in the discussions and maybe you could draw somebody's attention to this?)
