Yup, and it is easy enough to figure out what level of obfuscation would 
be sufficient. Just make a web page with a few differently obfuscated 
addresses, and see what gets spam. Use them as spamtraps afterwards. It 
has been done, and I heard just a little obfuscation works, but one 
might want to figure it out for oneself.
