This opens the door for spammers, but also job applicants, customers, etc. Does your address have to be public? Everyone I know who isn’t into computers like we are (which, remember, is likely 95–99% of the people in the world, and is therefore the kind of person that matters) uses Facebook instead of e-mail. There’s no real concept of a public address for messages there. You have to explicitly allow people to send you messages by becoming their friend.
