Heh, I figured the way I described would be the easier route :)

I'm not so sure this really isn't a viable strategy, honestly. I notice on
NANOG in particular that most people don't post from their corpro account,
seemingly to keep a bit of distance between the geek line and corpro line.
It's not like it's hard to get email accounts these days unlike the dawn of
time when most of us cut our teeth. I can't think of any other pathological
cases like mailing lists that would defeat that as a policy/strategy.
