I'm not entirely certain I understand your wording. If you mean that the actual content originates somewhere else, then of course I'm aware of that.
Now, I may be mistaken, but isn't it the case that LWN has made a cut-and-paste into their own content management system?
Or, are they really downloading text from that remote site whenever you and I load the page? While possible, I honestly doubt it, but please enlighten me if that is the case.
Otherwise, then, the content is now stored at, and served from, LWN and LWN could, if they so chose, apply re-formatting of the e-mail addresses. I doubt anyone would consider that a violation of quotation ethics.
I am also aware that the LKML where the message originates is a highly public place, so in this particular case it makes no difference at all. My comment was merely indended as a note to Mr. Corbet that there is something he could perhaps consider to build into LWN.
