Prevent bots from grabbing your email in forums

I saw the thread regarding not posting email addresses in threads. What allot of people do is not put the actual email address of, example JoeShmoe@nowhere.com

They would display the email as either..
JoeShmoe at nowhere dot com OR JoeShmoe @ nowhere dot com

As far as I know, there are no bots that can read email addresses typed in such form. But don't forget, the best way to get email addresses is actually from a forum database. Unless the hosting site for this forum protects against bots from obtaining a copy of the forum database or using the forum database to send out spam. Forum databases are usually SQL database.
