    Profile - listing email

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Phil Rabichow on 01/03/18 23:25.</FONT></P>In my profile, I list my "munged" email address that I use for public newsgroups, to prevent email bots from using my address for spamming. However, it also means that anyone emailing me must remove the extra letters.

    Is it necessary to do that in my profile for this Lounge? i.e. I would remove the garbage if I knew that spammers couldn't gather up a bunch of email addresses.

    Oh, & if I'm just being paranoid, perhaps one of the "Word on High" could mention that it's not a worry here, like it is on public newsgroups.

    Thanks in advance.

    If I understand this forum, one would have to open each and every profile, cut and paste the email address. In your case they would also have to edit out the "munged" area. But of course some people will do anything for maoney

    Hi Dave:

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not worried about someone doing it manually. As long as there's no way to have a machine do it automatically, like they do in the public newsgroups, I won't let it bother me.

    Stick with the antispam insert - you never know what they'll get up to next...

    OK. But I notice that <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> hasn't munged hers. But, they wouldn't dare try anything to you, would they! Not unless they wanted both <img src=/S/nun.gif border=0 alt=nun width=20 height=20> & <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15> against them. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
