Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Email protection in code
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.
Sometimes parts of the source code is replaced with "email protected".
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 @ 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.

- 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)
