    I guess I'll support for that idea.

    However, I use intouch, a contact form plugin, so that I don't have to post my email anywhere on my site.

    What you mean is email address obfuscation. There are plugins which do this, but it would be good to have this in the core too.

    I think this is typical theme/plugin functionality, and shouldn't be added to the core.

    There has been function antispambot() to obfuscate email since WordPress *0.71* (ie since the very beginning)

    Using this function is the role & responsibility of plugins & themes.

    I believe having a contact form on your blog and simply linking to that would eliminate the need to having to post your email address on your site.

    Hello,
    there is a webpage, http://www.emailhide.org, that encrypts your email address in a secure manner. All you nedd to do is type in your email address and is returned html code with a link with your encrypted email. I've tried and now i use it everytime. There's also a automatic gen for webmasters. Check it out.

    I tried using obfuscated email coding like thegatekeeper suggested, but wp "re-encoded" it back to plaintext when it published it. *sigh*

    I second what Ozh has already said. antispambot() has always existed. It's not WP's responsibility to make sure it's used. Themes, plugins, and users have to actually use it.
