    The best, and only absolutely reliable way, is never to post them. If
    you choose this option, you need some kind of server-side scripting (php,
    asp(.net), cgi/perl) where you can either hard-code the addresses, or
    pull them from a database.

    Next best is to insert the address using client-side scripting
    (javascript). Most harvester bots have js turned off, so putting the
    address, broken into parts, into an external javascript should keep them
    safe.

    Or you can try the trick of changing part or all of the address into
    character entities ( = &#65;, so me&#65;myisp.invalid). There are
    scripts out there which will return a string of character entities when
    you input a text string.

    For an interesting perspective on this, see:
