Doesn't really protect email addresses
By , for WP 4.1.1

Nice try, it really does what it advertises, but this method of obfuscating strings isn't effective. An encoded string using any kind of HTML entities can be easily decoded using html_entity_decode() PHP function, for example. I did it.

As far as I know, javascript is the only effective way to do this.

Doesn't Catch All Email Instances
By , for WP 4.0

Sorry to be the first to post a fairly negative review. I have implemented this plugin and thought it was great on the first few pages I viewed. However, I have three instances of email addresses I want to protect (info, admin and name specific). The plugin seems to find some of these and does a good job of disguising them. However, when I look at the source code for all the pages several instances of email addresses are not converted thus rendering the protection incomplete. Since there's no user interface, I can't see it's something I'm doing.
