There's more to getting active on the internet than just sending email. If you had any other way to get messages back and forth, you would probably hesitate to try it. Mainly because, all your friends have your email address.
So if you changed to a system where you would need a new email address, you would not only lose a lot of your friends, you would have to go through the trouble of giving everyone your new email address, and if they remember it, you also have to remember to check it!
Maybe we should try something different... let's say that you log into one system where you can find everyone that you need to contact, because everyone you know is there. You don't need to know their email address. All you need is their user name.
You send them a message and they send you messages back. No email address needed! Of course there are always those that you would rather not communicate with for whatever reason. Especially the ones that try to sell you things that you don't need.
If you want to make new friends, you can send a Public Message to announce that your available. If you want to keep your life private, than no one will bother you. To make a long story short, you can do what you want, when you want to do it.
