It may be that somewhere there is a pool of people who post with their
real spammable id on posts, but they sure are not my customers. I doubt
that users will use a service which insists on their real mail address, I
certainly will not run software which provides it, and I think the idea
that we should all be so trusting is not related to the real world.
To require a real id is naive, to even recommend it is unrealistic. I
can't believe the standard would be passed with this in place.
