I detest spam and abhor spammers. One popular technique for spammers is to use a bot to crawl websites and harvest email addresses. On all of my sites, I use encryption for the email links (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/emailriddler/) but that doesn't even work all the time.

Today, I ran across this brilliant method (http://english-61862011560.spampoison.com/) to foil and poison a Spammer's harvested lists.


Fight Back Against Spammers

WWW Robots (also called wanderers, spiders, crawlers, or bots) are programs that crawl the Web continually retrieving linked pages. When a spammer's bot visits your website, blog, forum, etc, all pages and sites linked to it will be searched looking for email addresses.
Now you can fight back against their robots!

All you have to do is link to this page so that whenever a spammer's robot scans your page, it will be sucked into this one. To link to this page, just use this simple code:

<a href="http://english-62674983082.spampoison.com"><img src="http://pics3.inxhost.com/images/sticker.gif" border="0" width="80" height="15"/></a>
This is a not-for-profit link and code. I offer it to my brothers and sisters to join in the effort to fight spam bots.

Once the spammers know their address they can filter it out. They need a more dynamic way to keep changing the "trap's" address.
