Messages of the form:

X (http://p2pu.org/users/x) has sent you a message via your contact
form (http://p2pu.org/users/y/contact) at p2pu.


currently come "From" the person's registered email address.  Since
some people will otherwise go to great lengths to keep their email
addresses secret, this seems like a design flaw.  At the very least it
should be an option ("Send direct messages from my own email address"
- off by default - or, "Send direct messages from
"something-made-up at p2pu.org").  It would be particularly nice if the
P2PU.org email address actually acted as an email forwarding address,
but that's a very secondary concern.
