Nigerians scams and p0rn spam.

I expect that most email addresses include a "human" name that can be
harmlessly displayed in the archives. Would that meet your requirements?
What I wish is the "machine" email address to be removed, not the real
name of participants. Real names aren't very useful to spammers.
True, I can smell a scam or spam email miles away, but it still bothers
me since the solution ought to be quite trivial. Why should we even
tolerate spam fodder harvesting when a cure is possible?
