Not user-friendly, but visibly looks good

WP Mailto Links add an icon, which I like, and protects RSS, comments, etc. However, it disables right click, copy email address, and makes copying the selected text email address difficult. For those of us who don't use email software built into our operating system, this makes it very not user friendly.

The closest that gets to what I want
By , for WP 3.8.1

If a human being user selects email address text and copies it into their clipboard, they are getting gibberish instead of the correct email address. (Clicking on the mailto link works fine on all the browsers I have tested with, but selecting and copying the email address doesn't work.)

It would be nice if right-click + copy URL or selecting and copying the email text would work.

I need the ability that someone can write a plain email address in the CMS and it automatically gets turned into a clickable link and this is the only one I have found where that works ... except that it's going to be darned confusing if someone copies an email address and gets gibberish.

Also, oddly, turning off the "Protect mailto links against spambots" setting, instead of just giving me the automatic conversion of plain email addresses into mailto links without the spam protection (which is what I had expected it to), simply causes every single email address on the site to be turned into "*Protected Text*".
