Subject Email obfustication -- "incorrect"
Date Mon, 23 Feb 2004 21:47:08 GMT
The email obfustication alorightm works very differently than I'd expect.

It takes "foo@example.com" and changes it to "foo.at.example.com".

The data that I have seen -- experiments with putting email addresses out there 
-- shows that changing the HTML source from @ to &#40; is sufficient to throw 
off all current email harvesters; but that method of obfustication lets the 
browser put up the correct "@" symbol instead of ".at."

Comments?
