In bug #33600 I was requested to send a license statement to libreoffice@
The problem is that doing so gets you a nice phishing email as a reply. Almost fell for it.
Is there anything the LibreOffice project could do to protect against fraud attempts like these?

This sample mail can be opened with a text editor or imported into a mail client such as Evolution or Thunderbird for inspection.

It might be considered acceptable for you to send your Contributor's Statement to a private TDF address rather than the public mailing list (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org), however any commits you make will have an email address in them, as will any posts to the mailing lists, so your email address will still be publicly accessible to spammers.
Any suggestions on how we might beef-up our defenses here?
