Version: 3.2 Obfuscate e-mail addresses to deter e-mail harvesting spammers, while retaining the appearance and functionality of hyperlinks.
I apologize to the author as this plugin has an elegant UI, is nicely coded and looks useful. But I believe there are some misguided and naïve approaches here that will hurt Web users at large, while not delivering the privacy that site owners expect.
mailto:in the link includes the normal email address anyway.
john [at] doe [dot] comapproach to email obfuscation is a pain for end users, who actually want to contact you. A JS overlay (as actually suggested in this plugin's source comments) would be preferred from an usability POV. Non-JS users can still get the "at/dot" text and deal with it.
