Ok. Well I don't think the ToS restricts the actions of the public
browsing the site. Matlab asks you to agree to the ToS when you create
a MatlabCentral account. Login is not required to download the
user-submitted FX content.

Let me first say that (as a user) if Mathworks was publicly publishing
my email address, I would have a big problem with them. So, to verify
your claim that you can obtain email addresses from MatlabCentral, I
clicked on the most recent submission in FX. I did not see an email
addresss. I clicked on the author info. I did not see and email
address. I clicked on a link that says "contact author" and I hit a
login screen. I don't have a MatlabCentral account. I don't know
what's behind the login screen. It could be an email or it could be a
web form.
