That's as unobfuscated as to be useless.  At that rate we might as well
not do any obfuscation at all and keep things easier for the humans :)

(They'll find it easier to read, easier to search for manually and
otherwise, easier to cut'n'paste into an email program, and perhaps the
web browser will even make such text clickable automatically.  Spammers,
however, have the luxury to spend fifteen minutes tuning their regexps to
catch "firefly at diku.dk", "firefly () diku dk", "firefly at diku dk"
