Email Address Encoder

I had the creator of Email Address Encoder shoot me an email looking for a testimonial I think. I imagine it does a decent job. It probably RegEx’s for emails it finds on your WordPress site anywhere it finds one in the content then does some weird obfuscation shit in which to:

protects your email addresses from email-harvesting robots.

I’m sure it does a perfectly fine job of that. But I had to tell the fellow:

I’m just weird in that I’ve publicly listed my email address anywhere and everywhere without any obfuscation for like 15 years and it’s never once been a problem. With that experience, it’s hard for me to endorse personally doing any kind of obfuscation.
