[qutoe]I recently read about using ascii code in mailto’s to thwart (some) attempts to harvest addresses. Does anybody know how well it works?[/quote]
Probably works well at the moment, but problem is all the spammers have to do is get their scrapers to parse HTML correctly! Not hard to do, so I wouldn’t count on this method at all.
I’ve switched to not providing e-mail address on a public web page in any form because after a while the “username at domain dot net” form will get used so frequently spammers will probably start parsing that, too. I use custom “form mail” scripts to allow strangers to send me e-mail. This works great for me - now I just have to worry about those worms sending attachments just because someone got an e-mail message from me.
