I believe email addresses are automatically obfuscated as part of the HTML generation process, but one of the PEP editors can correct me if I am wrong.
Yes, email addresses are obfuscated in PEPs.
For example, in PEPs 0 & 12, my address is encoded as "goodger at python.org" (the "@" is changed to " at " and further obfuscated from there). More tricks could be played, but that would only decrease the usefulness of addresses for legitimate purposes.
