I think no one will ever agree on this particular issue.

Maybe we could add a setting in FAS where each one can decide "I want
to use my personal address" or "I want to use my @fp.o address". Then
when FAS is requested for an email address, it would answer the one
the user chose.

I know adding configuration is almost never a good idea, but in this
case, it might be the only way to avoid endless sterile flamewars. :-/
