Yes, that's a plain vanilla mailto: link which some people think
your address to spammers. Do you receive lots of spam?
No, not a huge amount. What I get is mostly on newsgroups, not via

Coincidentally, I have just been adding 'munge' to
and IME this conversion of a mailto link into
entities seems enough to prevent harvesting by spammers. Or the ones that
do are so useless it doesn't even reach me!
