Thanks for uncovering that archive. It is highly likely that is where our 
addresses are
harvested. No matter how you obfuscate your email address on the Web it can and 
will be
harvested. Some people use scripts to display their addresses in HTML entities 
while
others use more sophisticated techniques such as adding blank spaces, replacing 
the @
glyph, or combinations of Javascript and CSS. None of them work for long.

My personal website doesn't contain my email address in any form. If people 
want to
contact me there, they are directed to a server-side CGI page.

The increase in spam around the world is directly proportional to the increase 
of
gullibility and ignorance in the world. Spammers make money because there are 
so many
suckers out there. Education and commonsense are the only effective defenses 
against it.

The function of art is to reveal this radiance through the created object.
