Of course but this would happen (and only happen) if the user logged in
before submitting the contribution.  Right now for perfectly valid
reasons we don't require logging in wishing the inbox to be as open as
reasonably possible.

I recently suggested we change this to require logging in since creating
an account is open to everyone and it seems like a small enough barrier
to me.  But it is a barrier and therefore worthy of consideration, pros
versus cons, etc.
