Email harvesting programs are automated and look for certain character patterns.... which this format doesn't follow. Keep in mind, in my original post I mentioned 'to the human eye' and 'to email applications'... but I didnt mention the page source... which is slightly different.

This new no spam thing you've done is really messing up a lot of stuff on the boards to be honest.

I'd rather just hit the delete button in my emails. I get all kinds of spam anyway, a few more isnt going to kill me

I was trying to update my profile and it said to enter a valid email address. I had to take out the no spam part for it to work.
