I don't see why.  For quite some time there's been a plethora of mail
services that won't let you use dashs or dots between words, so you're
stuck with the hard-to-explain-to-many-people underscore.  Likewise,
with the mail services having thousands of customers, it's harder to
create addresses with normal words (which are a bad idea, anyway, you
get spammed by dictionary attacks).

separated_words2001 is a quite common username construction, nothing to
do with spam at all.  It'd be quite a dumb spam spotting criteria.

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
