If I add my email address to my profile (in particular, in the "About Me" box) such that it is in the proper format (name@domain.tld) will it be vulnerable to harvesting by spam bots?

It would be nice if for example only logged in users with a sufficiently high reputation could see it as a clickable link and others as something that is human but not (or much harder) machine readable.

• Does "entity obfuscation" work? On my (rather publicly viewable department homepage), I list my e-mail address by replacing the username and the @ symbol with HTML entities, i.e. &#x0077;&#x0077;278<span>&#x0040;</span>dpmms... and it has worked well enough for the past years. But I assume SE has some sort of HTML sanitation on user input fields, so I wonder if this will work? – Willie Wong Jun 18 '11 at 12:33
