[thelist] Using JavaScript for non-clickable email addresses

If you use a server-side language (like asp, php, cf, etc.) maybe a 
contact form with a <select> list of all the users could work. That way 
you could have a server-side script match the users id numbers from the 
<select> list with their email addresses just before sending the message.

Kinda like a guestbook / email form. Just something to get the code away 
from the user.

Might be a bit more complex than what you're looking for, but it might 
do the trick.
