?  I'm not sure I get what you mean by trolls.  Can you expand on that?

It's hosted by the Perl Foundation; specifically these guys:
http://noc.perl.org/   If by "those steps", you mean replacing @ with
" at " in both header and body, yes.  If you mean something else, no.

Last I read up on it, that simple substitution eliminates almost all
spam (has this changed, anyone?) but if spam isn't your concern, I'm
not sure that helps you.
