I have been wanting to prevent web crawlers that collect email addresses for spam lists from collecting addresses from my site for a long time but never really liked the idea of directly encoding the email address such as tom.jones[AT]jones.com because I felt too many website visitors would not figure out what was going on and know to edit the [AT] to a @ .

So I decided to do what I should have done a few years back - do a search to see what alternatives there might be. Well I found a brilliant one AddressMunger.Com. Absolutely brilliant! Stops the crawlers and is totally transparent to the user. If you have a blog or a website - you will LOVE this :-)

And of course Wikipedia has something to say on Address munging in general.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
