If you want to avoid spam...

...make sure your email obfuscation does not backfire. The popular email obfuscation technique of writing (myname AT somename DOT com) instead of actually backfires. Because it is such a common technique, this google search is an excellent way to search specifically for this obfuscation. Spammers don't even have to harvest your address, Google (or Yahoo or MSN or ...) does it for them.
