Well I'm just saying how others interpreted CE's behavior.

It would be a big bother to change everything. Often you need a
pseudonym anyway, because account names are handier when they are
short. So why throw 2 names around?

Also this email address was meant as spam sink in the first place so it
has no meaningful name (registering to dozens of sites and mailing
lists which all show the mail address in plain text, which meant it'd
likely get a lot of spam). And one thing I don't want to do for sure is
giving Google my name for free. So I'd probably want to change my email
and email service too if I were to use my real name on this list.

Regarding employers, they'd get my "pseudonym" anyway because I'd put
a link to my github repository on my resume.
