Spam bots gathering emails

Spam bots gathering emails

Short, concise description of the idea
A spam bot has discovered how to collect email address of your user info pages

Full description of the idea
Recently I've gotten a few spams from your email address listing on the info page. Yes I'm 100% sure they originated from this. Would you be able to change the way you mangle the email addresses or have different levels of mangling? I really despise robots gathing email address and it appears as one has figured out your method.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Protection of your users email address from spammers

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Cut and paste might be more difficult for people to use.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • how about a autogenerated gif file that displays the email address.
