Email links – block spiders?
A contact form would be my first suggestion, but if everyone involved is okay making a few select email addresses public, then posting them on the site and dealing with any resulting extra spam on the other side would probably be okay. Spammers are able to get email addresses in lots of different ways, not just by scraping websites, so you’re probably already getting spam—and email providers all have spam prevention measures in place which help with this kind of thing.
A counter point is that if you do use a form to start with, and if the person does connect with someone, as soon as you send a reply they will have the email address at that point,.
