I had my email over to the right, below my "bio," for about two days, with the @ replaced with [at] etc., and I've already gotten about four spam messages today. I don't think it's coincidental, so I've taken it off. I'm not sure how it's already happened so quickly, but I'd rather folks have a harder time tracking down my email than getting bombarded with spam, unfortunately.
So if you'd like to get a hold of me, try Facebook, or googling. It should be easy. I just don't want a ton of spam.
Not only that, but one of them today said, "Get ready to use your left hand." I thought that was a bit presumptuous, since there are more righties in the world than lefties, and most of us probably aren't ambidextrous.
