Dear admins of, I think that "protecting" E-Mail addresses in a public archive of a technical mailing list which has the topic of E-Mail is a very bad idea.

This leads to archive quotes like

We've been getting many many strange mailman-bounces. It seems that somewhere the mailman-bounces address is mis-configured. It should be [EMAIL PROTECTED], but mail seems to be sent as [EMAIL PROTECTED] (note missing "u"). That's causing bounces to bounce all over the place...
which has better not been archived at all - it doesn't help when vital information is removed from the archived mail.

Yes, this example was taken from an actual archive entry. Sheesh.
