Incorporating email links is one easy way to enhance a web page
However, the benefits can come at a cost: SPAM!
The Internet is literally crawling with spambots - programs designed to harvest e-mail addresses from the Internet in order to build mailing lists
for sending spam (unsolicited e-mail)
All e-mail addresses have an @ symbol, so writing a spambot is easy
A variety of programs have been devised to foil spambots and below is The Obfuscator, designed to render your email addresses visible to the human eye and email applications but, hopefully, not spambots
By converting the ascii characters of your e-mail into html character codes, the simpler spambots will not recognise the addresses you post on your webpages and if they're not recognised, they are less likely to be spammed
