I think policing it at all is silly. Back in the day, we even gave out
@gimp.org aliases as contest prizes, and monitoring that usage is

I don't get where the expectation that postings from gimp.org addresses
should be considered as anything but the individual expression of the
author. Expecting a volunteer organization to have a rigid public face
is ridiculous.

One really should evaluate emails on the actual *content*, and
not what the From address says. There are several active contributors
who do not use gimp.org addresses, assuming their comments should have
"less weight" is rather rude. 

Can we please stop cluttering the development mailing list with this
