My favorite SPAM avoidance method (by me :) is to put my plain email address 
into an image (see http://fettcube.mozdev.org/ for example). No intelligent 
web spider could read this - no chance. People who run a text browser see an 
alt text which informs them that they have to open that image, to see the 
address. The only problem is that people who run that browser on a graphic 
noncapable system have no chance to see it. I hope that doesn't happen.

ciao, Stefan
