    Hi, I want to know how to protect email addresses on wordpress from spambots.
    I notice that it usually comes up in the dc: creator field on rdf, rss, etc.
    Ouch, am I exposing my email addresses to all sorts of evil things?
    Other than removing links to these feeds on the page, what can I do to ensure that my account can use a legitimate email address while the field on the feeds use a bogus address?

    Edit the *rss files manually.

    This is already fixed in CVS for the next release.
