Spam-me-not

So you read my last post and thought, he’s either stupid or crazy to put his e-mail address in a blog post. And you would be right, except that I am using a wonderful tool to obfuscate my e-mail address, to wit, the Spam-me-not E-mail Link Obfuscator. Andreas Neudecker, the author of the tool, has more information about the tool on his original site in Germany. Does it work? Yes, as Andreas notes on his page, the robots that crawl the web searching for e-mail addresses mostly are not smart enough to figure out the encoding. That may change in time, but for the moment, it is a pretty good way to put a mailto: link on a web page and not have your inbox filled with spam because of it. So thanks and a tip of the hat to Andreas for providing this tool.
