Have you considered asking the list for ideas / experiences / web 
resources how to avoid email harvesting by spammers?  There are quite a 
number of techniques (webforms are just of the techniques and it has 
drawbacks, too). It might be interesting to hear if anyone has 
experience with some of those techniques.

Since this is a problem for just about anyone with a website, it might 
trigger a thread of interest to many of us. Well, at least I would be 
very interested.
