Beyond the pay-wall

Mind the gap, hit the pay-wall, and you haven’t seen it all yet. I wonder:

why would a scientist publish with a journal that is not even going to provide their e-mail as corresponding author. Yes, it will be, most probably, available somewhere on-line but, is it ethical to put an extra requirement to those that are already limited by pay-walls? Which kind of scientific community are we building?
