SPAMBOT: Internet Dictionary Word of the Day

Remember this from the other day?


A robot used to collect e-mail addresses for the future use of spamming. Spambots are also capable of automatically posting spam to BBS’ and guestbooks.

Helpful Tip:

One way to receive less spam is to not post your e-mail address on a Web site, but instead spell it out like this: info-at-netlingo-dot-com, that way the spambot can’t pick up the usual @ and .com formula.
