The alternative to the Captchas. If you haven’t already heard, I’ve come up with a solution for form spam prevention that seems “to be more effective than other ways” according to The Email Wars blog.
As most people know by now listing your email address on any website directly as a mail to link will probably result in you getting an excessive amount of SPAM or Junk Email. This is from something called email phishing, which in short means that some bot/computer is crawling web pages and adding the email@example.com to a mailing list. So what can we do to prevent this?
Well, if you haven’t heard yet there is talk both on the National Level and the State Level to create a DO-NOT-EMAIL Registry which would be similar in nature to the DO-NOT-CALL Registry only governing email instead.
