Address munging is considered harmful anyway, especially so in email.
So why do it at all? It's less productive and more destructive than
C-R. Seems like a pointless excersize that does nothing to reduce
spam, nothing to prevent or help sort it's reception for later
reporting, is itself spammer behaviour, makes it difficult or
impossible to send a response or search archives by author, and makes
it impossible to make a personal response.
