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

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.
