Huh? What has the email address got to do with the alias or real name?

I don't identify people by email addresses (I doubt anyone does), but by
the name that's in front of the email address and/or in the signature.

to make it clear:   john doe <jd56 at dfgfgf.cg>
or with an alias:   johnny99 <jd56 at dfgfgf.cg>

It's the name that counts not the email address, I thought that's fairly
obvious and it would be nice if people would always use either the nick
name or the real name consistently everywhere (ML, IRC, bugtrack, forum,

Email addresses are a commodity with little meaning.

Anyway this is completely off-topic in this thread.
