Can't we just find some kind of gentleman/ladies agreement to not use
the mail addresses in public? I mean, I never got why these three
people insists on using their mail addresses for anything other than
receiving mail/as a forwarder.

As soon as someone starts to use a @openwrt.org mail address,
basically all other are forced to do so as well. Otherwise the way it
comes across is N @openwrt.org core devs + X people committing as
well. Which I'm quite sure is what nobody wants to see.

my two cents
