Hello. I'm using an unique email address to report bugs on django (the spamgourmet stuff) and I'm now getting spam though this address. I've put this very same email address in google, and it indeed finds my bug report pages in django trac stuff. Which confirms that the address is 'visible' from un-identified user on the site.
I've confirmed that by going to the same page while not being identified, and looked at the page source : the email is displayed in the page, raw.
This is really surprising, as I'm using spamgourmet a lot, especially on *.com sites, and so far this is the first time I ever got some spam through this. I'll probably get more spam just by filling this bug report.
I've used other trac-based report pages, and I did not have the problem. So I have hope this is not something you cannot manage to do with trac. Or maybe this is because of the high 'visibility' / pagerank of django website ?
I hope you can do something about this.
