Dawn | 61 comments There is currently a bug being reported by Goodreads users in which:

if you send someone a friend request, that request may show your email to the person you are asking, even if your profile setting for emails is "Share my email address with no one."

This appears to only happen if you are the person sending out the friend request, and does not happen all the time, but it is a risk. Please be very cautious with sending any friend requests out - be aware that they may give the recipient your email.

This is the link to the "Feedback" thread where the problem is being discussed.

Dawn | 61 comments They're claiming it was fixed, but users seem skeptical.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 75 comments I've heard varying reports of whether it's really "fixed" or not, yeah.
