What do you think, then, of rendering the text of the email into a GIF
or somesuch.

Combined with javascript, the clickable email functionality would be
able to be retained, but for users without javascript functionality,
they would have to read and type the email address manually.

I don't think we can assume that the user who feels a need to send mail
to the admin has a JavaScript-capable browser with JavaScript turned on.
Nor can we require it, IMHO.

have Javascript turned on.  Not good)
