 Address Munging
Author: P.Latulippe   (30 Dec 09 2:37pm)
Has anyone been feeding munged addresses (like "user at example dot com") to harvesters? I'm interested in seeing if this technique is still relevant today. The only information I could find was dated 2003.

We've run tests on different munging techniques and find that they are still surprisingly effective. We have a page that has a set of differently munged addresses. The ones protected by Javascript have yet to receive a single message. Even simple things like using ASCII character encoding to hide the @ sign, or adding spaces to the addresses, is surprisingly effective at stopping harvesting.

Thank you. I had been wondering about this myself and have taken extra measures to be sure I don't get spammed since I used to not realize and had my email blatantly out there. I am glad the javascript I am using works! :)
