Comment (by joostdevalk):

 I'm sorry but hiding data that is meant to be public (which is what it
 is), because "spam", is against everything we stand for. I'm very willing
 to discuss all sorts of spam prevention on the signup page, and further
 down the line, but the profile pages will be extended and have more things
 on them if all the plans I have for WordPress.org go somewhere.

 The example you gave of the support profile (
 https://wordpress.org/support/users/jdembowski/ ), is one of the problems
 in my eyes, it should be merged with and redirect to your
 profiles.wordpress.org profile in my opinion.

 So, with that, I would like to suggest we close this ticket, open a new
 one and use all the brilliant minds in this thread to come up with good
 spam prevention measures.
