when importing newsgroups and mailing lists, would be good if there was an option to obfuscate the email address of the original poster.

f.ex.: john(at)geeknet(dot)com(dot)au is displayed as: john (at) geeknet dot com dot au

not afaict, it only obfuscates emails when posting back to the newsgroup, not in the forums themselves.

All e-mail urls inside the forum are obfuscated by encoding @ and .

here you can clearly see xzilla's email address with no obfuscation. Also, upon closer examination, seems like some unparsed code in the href='mailto:blah'.

The unparsed code is how the user specified their e-mail address.

FUDforum does not encode e-mails into foo at bar dot com, but rather into a much more affective foo(at)bar(dot)com. The latter works just as well. And has the benefit of displaying the address properly to a browser.
