[tor-relays] Contact info obfscation

So I just changed my torrc file contactinfo to 
Keifer dot bly at gmail dot com

Do I need to restart my relay for this to take effect? 

Will doing this make it more difficult for spammers to reach my address?

ContactInfo is not used by (past) Tor Weather implementations
but it is still very much useful when people want to reach
the operator.

Some potential reasons to reach the operator are:
- misconfiguration
- security issues
- disfunctional relay

as I say in my last email there is no such service (Tor Weather) 
replacement (yet)
