Spam Proof Email Script

By storing the name, at sign, domain, and dotcom separately; and using JavaScript to write out the mailto tag using variables, we can foil e-mail trolling bots.

To modify this JavaScript to suit your needs, simply change the values assigned to the variables, and the content of the document.write lines below.

<script language="JavaScript">
<!-- Hide me from older non-JavaScript-enabled browsers

var name = "MonticelloAvenueuserID";
var atsign = "@";
var virtual_domain = "avenue";
var dotcom = ".org";

document.write("<div align=center>Comments/suggestions? ");

document.write("<a href=mailto:", name + atsign + 
virtual_domain + dotcom, ">E-mail</a>");

document.write(" them to us.");
