If you ever share your email address unmunged with anyone, anywhere in any 
capacity, consider that the spammers probably already do anyway.

Thus delaying the inevitable and making it a pain in the ass for real people 
who might have a real reason to email you.  You can't make it harder for 
spammers to get your email address even if you are making it harder for real 
people to email you, it just doesn't work like that.
