Obfuscating an email address for a Web page
Scripts on this page
Sorry! If this warning didnt go away, your browser didnt run the scripts, and this page wont work. Most browsers support the scripts, but your security settings might block them.
I dont recommend weakening your security. Instead, you might try saving this Web page and running the saved copy. See the copy permissions.
This technique is easily defeated if spammers ever take the trouble to program their Webcrawlers for it. Addresses published by this method should be throwaway, easily changed if (or, more likely, when) they become spam targets. That protects all users, not just you: if all addresses coded this way are likely to change when spammed, it's not worth their trouble to harvest them.
I strongly recommend that you track where you use or publish each address, so switching addresses is (relatively) quick and easy.
I use here a technique originally learned from the website of Robert Graham. I can no longer find his site or other useful references online. With gratitude for his instruction, I publish this attempt at a comprehensive utility in hopes of perpetuating that knowledge to the benefit of (non-spamming) humanity.
A partial conversion option, offered in Version 1.0, no longer appears. It is not gone: instead, it is now the only mode offered. Full conversion was less efficient and no more effective.
