One way that spammers obtain an email address is to have an automated search that looks for valid email addresses within public forums. While you need to be a member here to post, anyone can view (and search) through here.
Another way to circumvent the bots that hunt for email addresses posted on the web is to post them like this:

joseeblow(at)abcd(dot)com

or

joseeblow @ abcd . com

For a person who reads those, they would know to change the (at) to @ and the (dot) to a period...or to leave the spaces out...but a bot crawling the web would not automatically pick those up.
