Just reading an article in my evening paper (they always deliver early on a saturday) i saw an article on web sites thats been found, i took a look at this particular one having just had to delete an e-mail address i had had for a year or two, the reason for delete..porn and spam!
This idea seems to me a good idea, i would like your views on this web site , there should be many for a board this size.

I get enough crap from freinds that puts my email in those massize chain letter lists, goldmines for people who sell emails



I also heard on air farce that "Bill Gates says spam will be eliminated by 2010. in a related story the penial enlargement industry is expected to dramatically shink in 2010"

how long would it take to write a mod for your harvester to convert the ascii codes back into text again?

I'm sceptical as to how much this will really help to be honest.

the first thing you have to do would be to recognise that you are trailing through ascii codes, then convert them. It wouldn't be hard, especially if you had the program's source code.

having said that, using some form of email scrambler is better than nothing.
