TechCrunch sharing your e-mail address?

Ok, it’s not quite as bad as the subject makes it sound, but I noticed a few minutes ago while reading a TechCrunch post about Regator, that the name, e-mail address and web address fields were pre-filled with the details of the last commenter. Pretty ironic when there is a message alongside the e-mail field saying that your address will not be published. I snagged a screenshot.

When visiting the same page again, after another comment had been made, these fields were not pre-filled.  Perhaps this was caused by some strange coincidence, as I had clicked through from Rafiq’s blog and it was his details in the form as he had left the last comment.  Pretty strange.
