Users who responded to a survey on ethical dilemmas may have had their names and email addresses exposed for approximately 16 hours.  The survey results were posted on the Psychiatry Times website on June 7th.  The website post contained a link to the responses to the survey questions.  This somehow provided enough information for the names and emails or respondents to be determined.  The link was deleted and the survey was disabled shortly after the discovery.  Users were notified of the error on June 10.
