No, this employer seems quite sane :)
However, irc connections are as "real" as a kernel changelog message to
a lot of people.

Ok, then why display it as one?  Seriously, it doesn't really bother me,
just added it as I thought others would need it.  I know the "shortlog"
program can pick the real names out of the Signed-off-by: lines.

But I'll wait for Russell to wake up and start quoting the proper EU
privacy laws that he feels causes him to be forced to obfuscate his
email addresses in the changelog commits (as he did for the bk ones.)
