"[at]" and "[dot]". is used instead of "@" and "."

I was testing the email feature of the forum.

So I go to a member's profile page who's email is visible and click on the email button. Then my outlook express shows up with something like this at the To: field



The "[at]" and "[dot]". is used instead of "@" and ".". So I have to manually change it to the latter.

Is this a bug?

Thanks and regards,
James Yong

No, it is not a but, but indeed an incomplete feature, that I'll need to improve.

I don't want to write the user's email in the regular form, because spammers may use robots to steal the email address and use it to send spam.

What I have in mind is to use a bit of javascript to display the correct email. For example, something like



or something like that.
