Anti Robot email links

#1
I remember reading somewhere that you can alter email links in webpages so that Email gathering Spam robots either cant detect them or cant read them. Does anyone know how to do this, and can you tell me as well

thnx

I remember something about this, I think it might be along the lines of
PHP:
href="mailto:name&#isp.com"
Where the "& #" is equal to @. I'm not too sure though, that might not do much, there might be better ways. :)

EDIT: Had to use php instead of code cos it couldn't interpret the ampersand+hash :)

I may actually be insane.

There are possibly other methods, but I've only ever seen people add "nospam" or something like that to their email address or just use plain text (which is what i always do) ie: user {at} domain {dot} com

hehe, I figured out how it works, it converts the letters to ASCII codes, so geffy would be

[geffy]

gahhh vBulletin converts the ascii characters as well, damn it, quote me to see what it should be

basically it is &# followed by the code g = 103 terminated with a ;

its a good thing I got a copy of the ascii tables as part of my programming course :p
