I did not know where to post this so I am going to post it here and the moderators can move this to whever it needs to be.

I designed this script some time ago to hide my email addresses from webcrawlers, email crawlers and just about all email trappers.

I do not want any recognition for this little script and I hope it works as well for you as it does for me, and feel free to hand it out to anyone you think may be able to use it.

I hate spammers and this is my small part at doing the spammers in.

To make this script work for you, replace "cruisingcouple.com" with your "domainname.whatever" <make sure the quotes remain> and replace "gavin" with "your_email_name"

How does this work:

When the script does a lookup it finds the varible (in this case _nam) and replaces it on the screen with the name that you choose. It works the same with _dom.

The great thing about this is when webcrawlers, email crawlers and trappers go out onto the web they look at code not what is being presented to the screen, so they cannnot find or see your email address. As a result a lot less spam

If you want to see an actual page where this has been put into practice look at cruisingcouple.com/contact.htm.

To date I have not received a single piece of spam and this site though in its infancy has been up for almost 6 months.

I hope this is of use to you folks out there

<script type=text/javascript>

// Use this script when setting info email address:

var _dom = "cruisingcouple.com";

var _nam = "gavin"

var _w = _nam + "@" + _dom;
