Of course, as a reporter, you are probably getting email addresses of
people to talk to via referral, and that could be used to get past the
barrier. The problem of people spontaneously contacting a published
address is harder.

I don't claim to have all the answers, but experimentation will
probably tell us a lot more than simply thinking in the abstract.
