I think you misunderstood me, I'm not talking about multiple accounts, just
a second email address associated with the existing mageia account.

I don't use the same email address on the ML as in my Mageia account (like
I said I use separate email addresses for each purpose). I don't think I'm
the only one here using a separate email addr for the MLs.
AFAIK on bugzilla addresses are not publically displayed (they are only
visible for logged in users which in my experience is enough to avoid
email harvesters).
