This is easy, maintain or submit a PR, this involves your email address being posted all over, and spammers picking it up, your mailserver then falls over due to the volume of 'spam' sent to tagged email address.

I don't need a larger penis, hot XXX babes, or friends from Nigeria whose relatives want to give me MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, or stock trades, yeah I hate those too.
1] Tag each mail you send as a PR
2] Get spam
3] Deny all from that mail tag
4] Count the denies
5] Thank the guys for the effort in contacting you
6] Relinquish status of Maintained Ports
7] Feel bad about it

Suggestion, some sort of basic encoding of email address' when published (it goes a few places..)

Maybe an image (captcha) of the email address which is also then a

sed s/@/\(at\)/ |sed 's/\./\(dot\)/'

or something similar
