Once an email address has been public it's always public. You can't
stop spammers from sharing addresses they harvested already by hiding
those addresses now. They already have them.
Bearing this in mind, it's obvious why hiding your address now won't
solve your immediate spam problem. It might help in avoiding similar
troubles of future subscribers, but I doubt it will prevent it altogether.
