Today's "wow" weblinks post I have a list of sites which can encode your email address so that it can not be easily copied by spam bots, email sniffers and HTML E-mail harvesters. If you have a blog or website, this is a good way of protecting yourself from junk emails. If you do not have a web site or do not know what 'HTML' is, the encoder may not be of interest to you unless you want to show off as your email signature, in that case, you just need to copy and paste it each time you compose a message.

- EmailEncoder Form - This form will allow you to encode your e-mail address through the use of Character Entities, transforming your ascii email address into its equivalent decimal entity. Simply enter your regular e-mail address in the first text box, click the encode button, and then highlight and copy the resulting code produced in the second text box. This encoded e-mail address can be read and translated back into its original ascii text by almost any web browser without any further action on your part. Just replace all instances of your e-mail address on your pages with the code, and you won't have to worry (too much) about spam lists.
