OT2: anti-spam techniques (was RE: OT HH eBooks Re: [dvd-discuss] CTEA Protects What Copyrights?)

Oh, and I recently found a free service
that makes this sort of obfuscation of 
email addresses unnecessary.  It's at
www.spamgourmet.com.  You create an
account and tell it where to forward
your mail.  You set up a few key words,
then you can hand out self-destructing
email addresses as long as they contain
that word.

For example, one of my key words is
'joy'.  So I can hand out:

I will get the next five emails sent
to that address forwarded to me at
my AOL account.  Then that address
deactivates, so if a spammer picked
up on it, it's useless to them.

This is a great service for supplying
email addresses to online stores, for

btw: if one of your keywords is known,
(like 'joy') than anybody can make up
new addresses that will work for up
to 20 emails.  you can, of course,
have more than one keyword, and you
can remove compromised keywords from
your valid list.
