If I were writing an e-mail harvester, I'm sure
I'd have quite an extensive subroutine that looked
for known patterns of spam-avoidance, and how to
undo them. I can't fathom why otherwise smart people
assume that other smart but nasty people won't think
of the same things they did, and be able to undo them.
