  The suggestion wasn't to remove the addresses, but to "mask" them.
 That would still allow you to lookup the sender addresses if you
 wished.  eg "foo@example.com" -> "foo at com.example".

  I'd strongly second the proposal myself, as well as updating some
 of our other email-based-systems.  For example listing emails in the
 qa pages, in Debian changelog entries on packages.debian.org, etc.

  95% of my incoming spam is sent to my @debian.org address - and
 whilst making a change now is probably too late to fix the problem
 it might help others in the future.
