This (is supposed to) go to a generic mailing list watched by our Marketing/Technical Support folks.. (customers have a difference address to contact.) But that being said, I'm not sure if anyone actually uses that information for anything automatic. If they do, I'd be interested to know what. As far at the obfuscating email addresses goes..
