Spam Poison

Personally, I just don't put my e-mail address on web pages, but I still found this interesting.

If you embed a link that you can find at Spam Poison, it will redirect any spam bots to a page chock-a-block with generated addresses (that mainly point the bots to known spam-producing domains, adding insult to injury).

The idea is to make the lists harvested by the bots next to useless, because they're full of addresses that are guaranteed not to produce any revenue for them, hence reducing the profit level.
