Well, yes, it does.  Particularly when you come across idiots who take 
offense to something you've written, and decide to forward the email to your 
bosses.  It's happened to me (silly them - I AM my boss), and I know it's 
happened to others.  It's always a good idea to keep work addresses for 
work... (though, of course, sometimes lists like this _are_ work).
