As for me, I don't mind publishing my real email address but I would prefer 
not to have my alias published where the spammers can find 
it. I don't particularly like having forwarding aliases created for me, but if 
you have to give me one then please don't publish it.

I have a spam blocker that makes my address pretty much unspammable. It's 
unspammable even if the spam comes through a forwarding alias, but in that 
case backscatter may be generated. The spam blocker is implemented such that 
my own server never sends out backscatter, but I naturally have no control 
over the server or other forwarding servers. Therefore I try 
to avoid using forwarding aliases in ways that might allow spammers to find 
them, not because it affects me but to be nice to other netizens who don't have 
as effectual spam blockers as I have.
