To make the amount of spam a little less, the e-mail address is obfuscated. It is written in a .gif image (by means of the Gimp). The image consists of a transparent background of about 15 pixels high and 300 pixels wide (depending on the font size & the length of your mail adress).
Alternatively, you can make an image that only includes the @ sign, or you can change the @ sign to _at_.
This page is set as target URL. Mail address harvesters will actually see:
<a href="nospam.html"><img alt="name_at_somewhere" title="name_at_somewhere" src="location of the.gif" border="0" height="15" width="300"></a>
This will not prevent all SPAM, so better treatments will follow hopefully soon.
Below is some chaff for SPAMers and junkmailers that use programs to go fishing for mail addresses in web pages. I got it from Netizens Against Gratuitous Spamming (NAGS). It may do nothing more than fill up some error log, but, if everybody did a variation on this, SPAMers would get bogged down on bogus mail addresses.
