I'm putting together a site for a club, and a concern is that if I give members the ability to edit certain pages they will start posting their own (or worse, other members') email addresses on pages. This could lead to a major spam problem.

Is there any way I can either automatically protect any mailto hyperlinks they enter from harvesting, or else remove the 'email' option from the Links sidebar? The latter won't stop them posting textual addresses, of course, but at least it removes the encouragement to do so.
