On public email addresses

I have one. If you have a personal website, you should have one too. It's no mystery that I love emails but I also find it deeply infuriating when someone with a blog has no way to get contacted other than Twitter or now Mastodon. It's frustrating. The only safe assumption when it comes to online people is that we all have at least one email address and that should be the default way to get contacted. And I'm aware of the issue with spam and all that kind of crap. But I tell you, I had a public email online for now close to a decade and my inbox is definitely not filled with spam.
