I haven't seen these reports. Even if so (and I'm not doubting you), I'd wager
that scraping web pages for addresses is more prevalent than spammers
trolling usenet or listservs for victims. Personally, I don't see web
obfuscation as a huge loss or as a violation of debian principles. It would
close a gaping hole, and probably harm no one (except spammers).
