    Default Fight the harvesters

    I'm not sure how many people here use scripts to hide their email addresses, but I have found a site that will help you do just that.

    Since I have been using these scripts on sites, the harvestinmg seems to have subsided quite a bit.

    Just one line of code in the head statement and one line of code to replace the email address and thats it.

    If anyone has any difficulty in using this, just send me a pm and I'll be happy to help.

    Quite a few people have asked how this script works.
    The most common mistake made when attempting to use this script is forgetting to add the first part of the script to the head statement. It can go anywhere between head> and /head>
    Also, it does not change and it must reside on any page that you want to put an email address on.

    The balance of the script will change each time you want to change the email address, the anchor text the visitor sees, or the subject line.

    I have not figured out how to make this work when anchored to an image, or have not tested it very thouroughly in use in a shared border (such as with front page) or in use in frames. (I do recall someone was looking into this previously)

    I have a few sites that I have put this on with newly created email accounts and they are not receiving any spam whatsoever, except the occassional spammer that takes the time to browse a site first. This is after using this script for a number of months, and most of you know if you just blindly put an email address on a page in html, spam will certainly soon follow and within months that email account will definately have been sold dozens of times.
