Indeed:
 
http://www.turnstep.com/Spambot/avoidance.html
 
Almost any change has an amazing rate of return: while a spambot can be
simply changed to pick up things like greg "at" turnstep.com, there
is so much low-hanging fruit around that few if any bother. Glad to
see this is finally being changed. But we need to remove the mailto
link and make it a simple text.
 
I will propose one final thing: changing press at postgresql.org to
something else, as that email is likely to get lots of spam for
many years to come at this point. :(
