I can only support you there.
I sometimes don't write bugreports just because I don't want to burn some
addresses because of spammers that fetch my mail addresses from the BTS.
(Yes, I know that reportbug can be configured to use another address in
sending the bugreport, but that's not the point.)

But I think obfuscating is not the way to go. Another method to prevent
the collection of addresses should be discussed therefore.
