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.
