Yes, email addresses are obfuscated in PEPs.

For example, in PEPs 0 & 12, my address is encoded as
"goodger&#32;&#97;t&#32;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

Spam is a fact of life.  People just have to deal with it.
