Warning!

Just a word--a friendly reminder--to all who post their e-mail addresses here. Doing so only opens you up to tons more Spam. The bots scour the Internet looking for such postings. Your e-mail is then added to a list which is then available to every Spammer in the world.

Instead of posting myname@myemail.com try something like myname at myemail dot com.

The bots don't/can't see that as a vaild e-mail address, but you get your information to the person you intended to have it.

And by the way, you might want to consider Blue Security (http://www.bluesecurity.com/). It is not a Spam filter. It is a free, pro-active method of hitting Spammers where it counts, in the pocket book. It's certain worth a look!

If I've broken some sacred rule posting this here, then please accept my apologies in advance. Just trying to help out...

Actually you should just be certain that you've given a valid e-mail address in your profile. That will allow other members to send you mail without seeing your address. It's also important that you provide an address so we can contact you if needed for administrative reasons.

Yes, Boyd, you're absolutely right. Having the e-mail in the profile avoids this!

I was referring to those who include their e-mail address in posts and in signatures which are included in every post they make.
