If you don't want to accept mail from users, for whatever reason, you
don't have to.  But Debian requires that uploads have a valid email
address: and that means one that accepts all legitimate mail from all
users, and it isn't up to you to try and offload work to them.

You do not have to be a Debian maintainer, but the one simple
expectation is that you make it possible for users to contact you
using standard internet methods.

And don't trot out any lies about "no false positives".  Say, instead,
"I'm making you do work so that I don't have to."
