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. -- Perry E.
