We are talking about the Directory, so all they have to do is not make their profile available to other members.
Even then the Directory does not directly reveal members' email addresses.

However, it is perfectly possible (and therefore, it must be asumed, legitimate) for a group Owner to set the Members List to be visible by all members, making each member's email address directly available.

I'm far from certain that membership of any group brings with it the certainty that one's email address will remain "secret" for ever.
