Reduce spam from email addresses posted on your web site

If you post your email address on a website, you are likely to get an Inbox full of unsolicited email advertisements. What can you do?

Option 1
This tool protects email addresses by converting them into encrypted JavaScript code which hides the addresses from email-harvesting robots but still shows them to real people visiting the site.

Option 2
As another option, you can use this "scrambler" that turns the email address into its ASCII code equivalent.

If you want to improve your chances even more you can embed the ASCII code in JavaScript.
