I'd agree with you if we were talking about something as generic and 
obvious as (at), but if we're talking about (d) or de, something that 
would relate mostly to the ham community or the smaller APRS 
community, I doubt it.  Most of the people I've known or met in that 
particular 'industry' were rather lazy and automated in their pursuit.

I suspect there's a bigger interest in e-mails embedded in graphics, 
which I haven't seen many attempts from, even though OCR software is 
readily available.  We use Open-source OCR software to rip apart 
graphic-based spam before we attempt delivery.  The same software 
could certainly be used for that easily.
