Now I’m getting spam about spam protection services:

Jackasses. The funny bit is that the spam protection they are offering (for $8.95, no less) is just a bit of JavaScript that garbles email addresses so they cannot be harvested. Here’s the same thing for free:

<script language=”JavaScript”>
document.write(‘<a href=”mailto:’ + ‘name@’ + ‘youremail.com’ + ‘”>’ + ‘name@’ + ‘youremail.com’ + ‘</a>’);

Just replace “name” and “youremail.com” with your information and you’re good to go.
