cgi

This page is my contribution to a world without spam.

The idea is that it gives you a new random email address everytime you visit it. So in principle such things could fill up databases of spam companies who are using robots to search the web for email addresses.

And I wanted to play with cgi a little bit.

Cool idea

how about creating a java script that takes a few seconds for the browser to decode an email, that would mean that the spam servers would have to decode the addresses every time they found one and their ability would be vastly reduced

thanks (to the person with the same name)
xir: I guess there are different ways of doing such things. it is ok if the site remains user friendly
