I'm not sure I know what you mean with "tor cloud" can you
describe what you mean?

the contact info string will be published the same way you put it in your
torrc configuratin file if you want to make it harder for email address
harvesters / spammers to send you email you can obfuscate 
it however you like.

in the following spec I'm using a specific way to obfuscate the "@" 
sign with a "[]" so I can process email addresses automatically,
but it is up to you how you obfuscate your address
