A fairly simple solution to this: Change the email address to a non-clickable image. The only major disadvantage is that visitors will need to manually type it into a message, but it at least provides a non-form option for people who prefer their email clients.
Of course, some day, they may start writing pattern recognition routines. Seems like a lot of CPU cycles to spend on the problem, though, and most spammers would probably simply go to the next URL on their list.
