I would argue that using a personal email and filling in your full name on coinbase, who CLEARLY state you have no expectation of privacy in this regard, is effectively the same as publicizing the information.

If one cares about the privacy aspect, then don't use an email that is tied back to you in any way, and certainly don't fill in your personal information.

Or, and this is much easier, use a web site that actually cares about its users' privacy?

If CoinBase is so needlessly sloppy then it's not hard to picture a Mt Goxish scenario in its future.
