Anti-spam strategies based on concealment and/or obfuscation of addresses
are no longer viable.  (For a variety of reasons, including harvesting
from public sources, harvesting from private sources such as compromised
systems, and the deployment of abusive, spam-supporting tactics such as
callbacks/sender address verification.)

Yes, I know there are counter-examples, I have my own collection of them.
But they're exceptions, not the rule.
