check the box already!!! UPDATED

laura over at organizing junkie has pointed out that there is a box on your blogger profile that everyone needs to check.

laura says this: "Really I can't believe I didn't figure this out sooner! You see all this time whenever I check my email I always get so excited when I see comment notifications with the commentor's email address included. I really really love this because it is so quick and easy to hit reply and say hello. For the life of me though I couldn't figure out why only some commentor email addresses showed up and why others said "noreply-comment(at)blogger.com." It has been bothering me forever and now they mystery has been solved. "
...
please check the box, it makes it soooo much easier to correspond with people when they leave comments. i've had my box checked for awhile and it get responses to my comments on other blogs, so now i ask you readers, go to your profile and check to see if your box is checked.
...
thanks to lisa who asked for more clarification, so for those of you who need step-by-step instructions here you go:
...
(1)go to your dashboard, (2)click on "edit profile" (hint the link will be under your picture on the upper-righthand corner of your screen). under the heading of "privacy" you'll find the option of "show my email address" (third one down) and then you (3)check the box.
...
go on, do it already, i'll wait ... no seriously it's as easy as 1.2.3... i promise i wont send you chain letters or flowery forwards, please please please ... go now!!

OK. So I am new, but I have read this post and all the links to this post, and I STILL can't find the box! Is it because there is a "old" and "new" blogger? Or am I really a moron? I did find a "selection" (no box checking anywhere) that allowes me to be emailed when there is a new comment. That is nice, but it comes from blogger and there is no email to reply to. HELP please!!!

So I am a moron....
:(

Thanks for the help. I really thought that meant it would just show in the profile. I'm a little slow....but hoping to change that soon.
