I recently received an email, apparently from a student member of proz.com and apparently viw proz.com, asking me whether I would be agreeable to her monitoring the answers I give to terminology questions. Has anybody else received this type of e-mail? I just wonder whether it is a genuine proz.com send or not.

KudoZ tracking feature Jul 1, 2010

It's probably OK - sounds like she wants to use the KudoZ tracking feature. See FAQ

My previous speculation was rendered obsolete by Alison MacG's answer.

I have one such person Jul 1, 2010

It does not bother me - if someone find it helpful or interesting than I think it should not be a problem. After all my answers are public anyway.

Thanks... Jul 2, 2010

... to all those who took the time to answer. I'm now reassured that the hyperlink in the email is not going to cause all sorts of nasty things to happen to my computer!

Naturally, I assume that it must not be.
