Spamming and mail archives

I am considering changing my email address because of the amount of Spam 
I am getting. One of the reasons that I am getting so much spam is that 
my email address is in places that spam harvesters can get at it. One of 
these places is in the rtems archive. If I change my email address and 
start sending messages to this newsgroup, the spam harvesters are going 
to get me again.

Is there a way we can overcome this by making the archives less 
accessible to spambots. One way I have seen is that the user is required 
to enter text that is displayed on a PNG file.
