A way to avoid the 'bots from getting your email, is when you have to post your email address, you can substitute (at) for @ and space the address out so it isn't a link.

I do try to stay away for "Questionable Sites", and my "Ad-Aware" program does alert me if the site has a bad history. But I am sure that even some of the better sites can be under attack from the spambots. Thanks for the "at" substitution thing. I will try that the next time I am asked for my email.

Almost always sunny here unless there is a hurricane bearing down on you. And then it's time to hook up the burb and roll. So far I've been very lucky.

I get the Viagra ads in my Hotmail account but not in my primary "personal" account that I have with my DSL provider. I think Viagra lands in just about every bodies' email box from time to time. Fortunately, it goes straight to my junk mail box and I don't have to deal with it except when I clean the box out. I figure they have some kind of program that randomly assembles letters to make email addresses.
