So, I’ve been talking about spam prevention lately and different ways you can protect your e-mail address. And today, I have one for you that will work on Web pages and forums. You often have to prove you’re human to register on Web sites and now, people have to prove they’re human in order to e-mail you. Sounds good to me!
It’s very easy to use too! Just type in your e-mail address and click on the Protect It button.
You’re then given three lines of information: Web site, forum and just the link.
Web site – This provides you with the HTML you need in order to post this on a Web page.
Forum – This provides you with the BB-Code you need to post it on a forum.
Just the Link – This provides you with a direct link to the CAPTCHA test that protects your e-mail. You can check mine out here.
So, when someone clicks your e-mail address or the link you provided, it takes them to a page where they have to type in information to get your actual e-mail address. Thus, making it harder for spammers to get ahold of your e-mail address, because their bots can’t prove they’re human.
I think this is a fantastic service and I can’t wait to see how it grows. Give it a try!
