I want to make my email address available on my website and I was wondering if there was any point in using the "(at) (dot)" convention these days. If I was writing a script to trawl for email addresses it would definite contain a match criterion for this. Similarly, for the same reasons it seems unlikely that using the html unicode version of my email would actually be an effective protection. It seems like it wouldn't be worth the inconvenience of not providing an actual link (and not being able to use an image).
The different ways of writing email addresses seem like security though obscurity, but not obscure at all.
will using the "(at) (dot)" convention actually affect whether people get my email address?
Will modern spam filters make the answer to (1) irrelevant?
