Still, I just read an announcement of a module you can install in your webserver that is designed to foil spammers. One tool that spammers use to grab new email addresses is wandering the web, grabbing "mailto:" links. As shown in this page, there's no reason to make their life easy. It strikes me as spamming the spammers; feeding them bogus email addresses that will consume some of their bandwidth instead of mine.
I get tickled by the oddest of things, I guess.
