Talking Email Harvesting Prevented

I just added a new feature that prevents emails from being stolen by 'harvesters' when you type your full email to be displayed on a website.

Now when you input your email it essentially scrambles the HTML side of the code.

Webmaster@paw-talk.net looks like this to a harvester program:
Code:
<a href="mailto:%77%65%62%6d%61%73%74%65%72%40%70%61%77%2d%74%61%6c%6b%2e%6e%65%74">&#x77;&#x65;&#x62;&#x6d;&#x61;&#x73;&#x74;&#x65;&#x72;&#x40;&#x70;&#x61;&#x77;&#x2d;&#x74;&#x61;&#x6c;&#x6b;&#x2e;&#x6e;&#x65;&#x74;</a>
Not much in the way of forum use, but it does protect you as members much better!
