E-Mail Obfuscation

Most webmasters realize the importance of hiding e-mail addresses on our websites from e-mail address harvesting spam bots. Over the years, many methods have been used to address this problem. Many are simple reconfigurations of the text displayed so that only a human can perform the logical analysis to figure out the real address. These are of the form: contact_removethis@company.com, contact(at)company(dot)com, contact at company dot com, etc. There are also quite a few methods that use JavaScript. A List Apart has an article by Roel Van Gils, “Graceful E-Mail Obfuscation” that offers an interesting alternative approach.
