Address scrambling is not helping a lot in my opinion.
Thus there are many places my email addresses are published unscrambled.
A good (local) spamfilter gives some protection,
but in the long run the internet community as to come
to better solutions which is outside of the focus of this group.
You might want to support efforts like http://www.cauce.org/.

Bottom line: scrambling email addresses or protecting webpages
behind authentification does more damage then good as I can see it.
