Not sure if this is necessary or not...but....

Right.  Everyone knows that spammers are brainless morons incapable of 
writing the simplest of scripts.  They rely totally on stooges such as 
Thomas to provide them with lists of email addresses.
The only answer is to obfuscate email addresses in a predictable manner so 
humans can read it and no program could possibly come close to guessing the 
real thing.
