in reply to Simple Anti-Spam Encoder

See my Apache::AntiSpam on CPAN, if you're friendly w/ mod_perl. And wow, HTML-encoding E-mail is a nice idea, I'll implement this on my module soon. Thanks.

Update: implemented and gone to CPAN. check out Version 0.04 of Apache::AntiSpam, if you're interested in. Thanks again for your idea.

    As your module is doing a good job, you might consider adding a filter that converts user@domain.com to user-78c1ed6da0322b3a@domain.com, where the added hex string contains the encrypted timestamp and remote ip-address of the address harvester.

    If one receives spam to such an address, he knows the IP address of the harvester and can try to prosecute the spammer.

    See Anti-Spam Mail Address Encoding (with encrypted IP-Address) for two subs doing the encoding/encrypting
