Is this MetaFilter feature a security issue?

Most sites have ways to recover a username with the email associated with the account, and MetaFilter's is located here
. Unlike other sites I have seen, MetaFilter displays the username associated with the email in the browser as opposed to emailing the account used. I know that some users may wish to keep their identities secret, and this publicly links their email with their account. Is this a security issue?
