Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Email protection in code

From Rosetta Code
Email protection in code
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.

Summary

Sometimes parts of the source code is replaced with "email protected".

Discussion

With 'sometimes' I mean the Forth language and the standardized words R@ 2R@ C@ 2@ F@ SF@ DF@, but in principle it is possible, and not very unlikely, to define Forth words of the form something@, or even something@somethingelse. I suppose there is a good reason for hiding email addresses, even if those who edit the pages put them there by themselves, but would it be possible to exclude <lang>...</lang>-sections from this protection. It is possible to replace a triggering @ with &#64; and most browsers should display the code alright, and even copy-paste should work, but it's an inconvenience to mangle the code like that, and it doesn't feel right. --Tommy 12:24, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

I had the same problem with ASCII-art (as included within the   <pre>   and   </pre>   HTML language tags,   where the art had, among other characters, random characters   (such as the   @   character)   used for dithering.     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 13:59, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
I think I remember that (the above) was due to something that Cloudflare was doing, but I'm not sure, it was a while ago.     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 16:42, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
