so the single way is to post my email in comments? – Andy T Feb 10 '11 at 11:54
@Andy Or in your profile and hope the OP will be smart enough to view it. :) – Shadow Wizard Feb 10 '11 at 12:03
put your e-mail in your pofile and @the OP to view the profile. – tombull89 Feb 10 '11 at 12:06
@Andy, if you're paranoid, invite the OP to a "private" chat room, post your mail, then remove the post when they've acknowledged reception :) – Benjol Feb 10 '11 at 12:25
@Ben taking part in chat requires more reputation than comment - this can be big difference when dealing with total newbies in SO. :/ – Shadow Wizard Feb 10 '11 at 12:27
@Shadow, depends where. 20 for chat and 50 for comment anywhere. And IIRC a high rep user can invite anyone to a chat room. – Benjol Feb 10 '11 at 12:52
@Benj good point, got confused about chat vs. comment anywhere and didn't know about invitation part. :) – Shadow Wizard Feb 10 '11 at 13:46
