What profile fields are viewable by someone who is not a Metafilter member?

If you go to your preferences you'll see this note at the top of the page: "note: Items with a highlighted background are only shown to other logged-in members, and won't be seen by the general public or search engines." So most of what you enter there is only viewable by other members except for Full Name, Picture, Homepage URL, and Blurb about you. Email is only visible to members if you've elected for it to be so.

Please be careful bringing profile information over to the main part of the site where it can be indexed by Google. This MeTa comment discusses a little more about the ins and outs about what you should and shouldn't do with information you get from people's profile pages.
