Stupid Spammers

I was just checking my spam folder before cleaning it out and saw an item "from Google." Naturally, I dug into it and clicked "Show original." Here is an edited portion of what I see (names and numbers are changed to prevent tracking by the sender):

Do you see it? What I mean is, the email address of the sender, "patdelano@jangomail.com." Now if I use that address with the provider string "mailto://" as in mailto://patdelano@jangomail.com or even as markup as in Spammer, then if someone scrapes this blog for email addresses, they will get his address and he'll start enjoying the reception of spam email as much as he wanted me to. :-) hehe! "Justice served."
