Doesn't a1poweruser.com use spam filters such as the various DNSBLs?  On a 
bad week, I may get 10 and reject 500.

Can FreeBSD protect the email addresses somehow, such as requiring 
Javascript to decode them?

I assume that the spam in question doesn't come straight from FreeBSD's 
servers of course (unlike a lot of other spam).
