I just filed a bug and I just noticed my e-mail is publicly shown in plain text, just replacing "." with "dot" and "@" with "at".

Do you really think such a crude way of "obfuscating" an e-mail address is going to stop spammer bots from harvesting it?

The e-mail should not be visible at all to begin with!
But if you absolutely need to display the e-mail address, please use a more advanced way of mail address obfuscation.

Expected result:
E-mails should never be shown in a public website directly reachable from search engines.

Actual result:
Do not show e-mails in a public website.

Also, if I try to change my mail to prevent it from being on a public website, this e-mail is still being shown in the "History" section of the bug report, so I really can't remove it! Please, do not show e-mail addresses in the "History" section.

If you have a problem with that, create a dedicated email address for PHP bug reporting (those can be had for free from about 9000 free email providers). Most of those also have pretty effective anti-spam filters.
