[wp-hackers] Question about the_author_email template tag

Have you tried viewing the source and not just the rendered page? Using 
HTML character encoding it should partially protect the email address 
when using antispambot(get_the_author_email()); There will not be any 
noticeable obfuscation on the rendered page.
