Agreed.  Something else I felt I should mention is that rogue users can 
also harvest email addresses.  I see this sort of thing on the debian 
bugtracker: I accidentally posted a bug report from the wrong email 
account a couple of months ago and almost immediately started receiving 
spam on that address.  Just another reason to keep them out.
