DATA-MINING WEB BOTS:
|SCRIPT YOU NEED TO ENTER||WHAT IT DOES|
|email = "email"||reads part of target email address before the "@" sign here|
|domain = "domain"||reads part of target email address after the "@" sign here|
|document.write("<font face='Arial' size=2><strong>");||adjusts the face, size, emphasis of font|
|document.write("<a href='mailto:" + email + "@" + domain + "'>");||writes the HTML string to create email link|
|document.write("<font color='6699CC'>");||sets fixed color of displayed link|
|document.write(email + "@" + domain);||writes the email link to the screen|
|document.write("</a>");||terminates text writing|
|document.write("</font></font>");||terminates both assigned text characteristics|
|</script>||returns control to HTML|
What appears on the screen looks and works exactly like a normal email link, except the bots can't read it. Cool, huh? We do what we can to beat the spam.
As long as we have your attention, here's another way to limit the data available to web bots and protect the privacy of your contacts. When you forward an email, or mass-send an original, use the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) option under the Send command. The details will depend on your particular email client, but there's always a way to do this. If you don't use BCC, the list of multiple email recipients in your email header could also be mined by web bots. Use BCC and help us stamp out spam.
