Last actual experiement I saw, by Netscape? Netcraft? ??? showed
pretty conclusively that any kind of obfuscation, even the most
trivial, was effective.
It's not that they don't know of it -- It's that every time they cast
their line, the get a zillion fish anyway.
If every time you cast your line, you get a million fish, do you worry
about beating obfuscation?
I'm not saying that it's not going to turn into an arms race
eventually, but, so far, the email harvesters have so much yeild that
they haven't even pulled out a slingshot yet.
