@Saytha Looks like Ivo submitted it too. Probably better to vote up that one instead.

Neat idea using JS to obfuscate the email address, but in most cases (like in an email, on this site, etc) that's not really an option. However, I agree that it should be standard practice on sites that allow users to expose their email to other users.

True, and spammers probably realize that people that obfuscate their email address don't want and won't fall for spam anyway, but on the flip side there are some harvesters that get paid per address for whom it would be trivial to identify some of the basic obfuscation patterns (having "gmail" on the page is a start)
