I wonder how long it will take to go from publishing this address to getting spam. That's part of the point, though. Here's a new email address you can use to reach me: 我@李思華.中国. Or you could, if your mail client supported internationalized email addresses. None of those I use regularly do (Thunderbird, Gmail). I'm curious whether spammers have become earlier adopters than the rest of the Internet, or maybe more accurately how many of them are and how quickly those will find me. I suspect lower-level mail sending software is more up to speed on potential ways to remind you of your need for L!pit0r and Nigerian bank accounts. It's not exactly a new technology, though they are still working on making the recipient part expand past the characters Americans can normally type.
I'll follow up later on who finds me and how long it took.
