I have a suggestion that will probably help to reduce spam to emails
provided in RIPE whois output:
1. Substitute email addresses in whois output with something like "use
http://www.ripe.net/whois";
2. Substitute letters in emails at http://www.ripe.net/whois with
their graphical representation or use javascript to build the text
that spam robots will be unable to parse.

I don't really feel this will cut the overall spam I get, it will just make contacting other network operators hard. Please can we bury this one.
