    SEO wise it's not a problem, but you might get spammed to death thanks to the automated email scrapers.

    Avoid plain text like the plague. Links still get scraped obviously. We use a lot of "[email protected]" or "[email protected]" email addresses and have them forward to dance around spam as much as possible. Once the incoming spam gets to unbearable, we change the listed email address to something new.

    True, this is not an seo thing but more of a usability and spam issue.

    Making it clickable gives visitors a quicker action to mail you but you will surely get spammed to death.

    Here's a nice article / tutorial for this - websitehelpers.com/spam/ (I don't own the site)
