    Wpoison

    Anyone familiar with this app, found <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.monkeys.com/wpoison/>here</A> ?

    Claims to confound spammers bots crawling through web pages looking for email by sending them unending useless email addresses to clog up their databases

    Thanks for any info on this, looks useful, but I dont know how to judge it's safety, etc.

    Hi Dave:

    I'm not familiar with it, but just took a look. I should point out that I know nothing about web design. Nevertheless, although the stated goal (making spammers databases worthless) may be good, I have some doubts that the utility will help the internet as a whole. Spammers don't care how many bogus or innocent people they spam. They'd just as soon send out 1,000,000 emails & if they only get a few responses--so what. Just a thought.
