I never give out the email address that I gave to this site, but now, I am getting all kinds of counseling and educational spam.


That's really wrong and you shouldn't sell email addresses like that.

We do not sell the email addresses of our members. 


ChristiinMN, the email address you registered your Mothering account with comes up in a Google search connected to several other sites, one of which is dated back to 2008. You may not give it out but it's on the web for email harvesters to grab. 


philomom, I only found one instance of your email address in a Google search and it was in a PDF document. I don't know why you are getting a lot of spam but it's not a result of Mothering selling your email address.
