I just noticed that the FSF's Free Software Directory displays un-obfuscated email addresses on project pages. I am sure you are aware of the number of spambots that trawl the web looking for email addresses to harvest, and so wondered why the directory does not use some kind of obfuscation technique.

I have a project that has been public for over 2 years, and it's description has been mirrored by many different sites, and yet the FSF's Free Software Directory is the only place to make a spambot friendly link to it. I hope you rectify this situation quickly, as at the moment every GPL contributors email address is harvestable!!!
