As Joe previously posted, it's on the info page for linux-elitists:
"Most are "lurkers", people who do not post to the list. If you are a lurker,
your address is confidential."

I figure you'd lose out.  But let's alter the bet a bit, and let me suggest a
betterment.  For each distortive rhetorical overkill I make on this list, as
judged by a panel of three neutral bystanders, I will make a $5 contribution
to the Linux Foundation, if in return, you will make a $5 contribution to the
same, for each email you send to this list which needlessly flames somebody
for disagreeing with you.

I suspect the Linux Foundation will make out handsomely with such a deal.
