Very well, I will change it back. I just wish there was an easier way to block spammers…

If you are worried about putting a real address you can use a forwarding only address under a different domain.

Do you think it would be useful if you had been given an address like aabbcc at torexitnode.net?

As part of a different thread on this list I asked what are some of the services and thinga Tor relay operators are missing. Perhaps an easy forwarding only email address that will hide to some degree the real email address.

It also makes it very easy to filter and figure out if it's spam or not.

Yes. However, I think you should consider publishing your unobfuscated
email address, for clarity and convenience to those who are legitimately
trying to contact you.

I don't obfuscate my email address in the ContactInfo field, and I
receive at most a few handfuls of spam messages per month. Most of these
are caught by my email provider's spam filter, which I already have set
to its least aggressive setting possible.
