If you put the "nospam" _after_ the "@", I would (hypothetically
speaking) just check which domain (with or without the "nospam")
was a valid email domain.

If you put the "nospam" _before_ the "@", then I would (hypothetically
speaking) send in both versions of the email address (with _and_
without the "nospam") and maybe make US$20 (*).

(*) I received a spam 6 days ago offering me US$10 for each
email address that I collect. I have no intention of
following it up, but I'm sure some people would.

Most spam scrapers know the common variants like nospam or spam and remove
them automatically.

Scrapers have a great deal more difficulty with plussed addresses or
things like

Fronm: (E-Mail Removed)

and a text line saying "remove your knickers to reply"
