This is a helpful post. i have a number of friends who post their email address publicly on a number of websites and profiles and then wonder why they get spam. The spider trap is a new one that I had not heard of before, I will be looking into that. Spam filters and other software utilities that may include them like Norton or Symantec are also good to have. One other tip that I use, which I hope is still effective, is I create an image of my email address in text that is a mailto:link. I think that generally helps decrease the number of bots that can pick up your email address as opposed to putting it in straight text.
