E.g. user@domain.com.

Probably not a bad idea, but unless you make a test and try, you won't know what harvesting bots really can and cannot decipher. – slhck Mar 7 '13 at 10:48

On your website :) In all seriousness though, a better place to ask for spam protection might be Webmasters, but make sure to check their existing questions and FAQ – slhck Mar 9 '13 at 8:55
