if you do this you are not curing the problem, rather you are making it
worse. This will never stop phishers from sending emails and you will
tell them that you are an active victim, so they will flood you more!

Why would they flood me more? It's not like you can hide your email address
if you use it to any extent at all. So them knowing it's active does
nothing. OTOH, they might not want to email someone who is likely to corrupt
the data they collect.
