Email Cloaker - Encode your email address to help prevent it from being picked up by spambots
Version: 1.0Just like Google scrapes the web indexing everything, spambots are computers that search the net for email adresses so the evildoers can spam you. Pretty uncool, huh?
Operating System: Mac OS X
You can protect yourself against these malicious bots - for example, by encoding your email address every time you put it somewhere on your web site.
There are several encoding methods, and the Email Cloaker provides two.
NOTE that these methods are NOT waterproof. In fact it's not difficult to teach a spambot to decode the address again, but the Email Cloaker should protect you against a whole lot of them.
You should also note that if your address has been picked up by spambots and you’re getting heaps of spam, encoding your address will not have any reverse effect.
