Make Profile Public?

I am not always the most efficient searcher, but I could not find the way to make my profile visible to the public. Sometimes I send people to check out geocaching and they can browse the site, but can not seem to view my profile unless they create an account. I tested it myself when logged out and indeed got the message that I needed to login to see that profile. What I am looking for is the setting where I can make it visible to anyone. Thanks!

IIRC, it used to be that people could view profiles even if not logged in. One reason for the change is privacy. Among other things, Geocaching.com profiles can, at the user's option, include their email address "in the clear." A spider bot could crawl through profiles to harvest email addresses for spamming and other nefarious purposes.
