Make Email Addresses on Websites Invisible to Scrapers and Harvesters!

Posted 3 years, 3 months ago on May 14, 2004
Webcomposing Internet Solutions has just released Unicoder v1.1, which is a perl script which "allows you with a single click to convert an email address to a unicode javascript that makes your email address on your website 100% invisible to any type of email collecting robots".

As most of you know, while the harvesting of email addresses from a website is prohibited by Federal law, that doesn't stop those outside the U.S., or, indeed, U.S.-based ne'er do wells from harvesting their little hearts out (oh, wait, do spammers have hearts?)

Unicoder works with any *nix/Apache based site, and can be found here.

I wrote a Java applet a short time ago that does the same thing, you can find it at http://www.mcbriens.net/liam/index.htm?emailencrypter.htm :-)

Hi, I am writing a utility in ASP that uses double encryption. Not that it will make it impossible to hack, but adds one more level of difficulty to it. Not everyone allows scripts to be run, so it adds a noscript option. The utility is not finished yet, but when it is, it will be found at http://pcWisdom.iUpTown.com and will be free to use. If anyone is interested in helping with this project, there is contact information at the site. Paul
