I've been plagued with spam email. I get mail telling me how I can feel better if I buy HGH or some such thing, add 3 inches to my WHAT?, see pictures of women doing WHAT?, with ANIMALS?, and also, lots of investment advice. I especially like the investment advice. It mostly comes from one source, Investor Insights. But they use a different email address every time they send me email. Now, get this; they expect me to trust their investment advice, but they don't use a real email address. So when I enter the address in my blocking software, they get around that by using a new address the next time. So who is stupid enough to take investment advice from creeps like this?
One of the reasons I get so much spam is that my email address used to be on my web site. It was right there in the html code. So the dirtbag spammer robot software that goes around the web harvesting email addresses from web pages could easily pick out my address because it looks for the "@" symbol, and assumes that the word before it and after it combined with @ is an email address.
Start with the regular mailto: link.

There, that was easy!
I know, that seems a bit complicated. But I'm now going to walk you through it.
So, let's say your name is Fred Smith, you have an account with hotmail.org, and you want a link to your email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
Pretty cool, huh?
And when viewed in a browser, all you see is Peter White, and it's a link!.
