Good grief, it's bloody obvious if you apply a tiny amount of thought to
it.  How stupid does one have to be to not realise that someone who
doesn't identify themselves does not want to be identified?  Try looking
up general etiquette, then; never mind something specific to e-mail.
You've been around long enough that you ought to know that sort of
thing.

I do use my real name, just not all of it.  E-mail addresses, the user
account name part (left of the @ sign), are not names.  Or should we
call you "Debian"?

Consider yourself privileged, Debby, ;-) that I let strangers refer to
me by my first name, rather than sir, or mister in front of my surname.

Or is it "John Spambait"?  (Comment not intended to be taken seriously.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
