Pleague of our century

Posted on:April 10 2005

That's not possible. Or is it? Yesterday I announced my brand new email adress at my brand new domain on the main page of irrlicht.sf.net, and I didn't write the adress correctly, I wrote additional spaces and an (at) instead of @. Today I'm getting the first spam mail. 'argl'
Update: Replaced the adress with images. Hope it helps.

Perhaps nikoATirrlicht3dDOTorg would've been a little better. Anyway, spam is really annoying and seems inevitable...

I think your image approach will be fairly effective, as I dont think most of these spam bots go and look at pages for images lol. Text, definetly...lol..speaking of images..skinnable gui..cough...id like to help...

Isn't the problem coming from this blog where your e-mail address is directly visible at the bottom of each post ? I don't think spam robots are smart enought to decypher an address with the (at) inside... but I might be wrong, who knows really !?

Spam that comes from whois is worse.

Also, if you only have one mail account, your mail server may be passing any unsendable mail to you.

Heck, I have 3 anti-spam filters on my mail server and still get "h0t st0ck t1ps!!!"

I already thought about whois spam, but luckily I did not receive any yet. About the mail adress on this blog: It is being encoded with javascript, take a look at the source. Don't know if this really helps, but I think.
