The purpose of this script is to protect your email address from being caught by spammers.
Spammers use robots to crawl the web and pick up email addresses from all web sites that the robots
encounter. This means that if you have a mailto:
link on your web site (such as <a href=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>Mail me</a>
), you're a potential spam victim:
The spammer robots might pick up your email address and add it to the ever-growing list of spam recipients.
What this script does is very simple: It creates kind of a "hidden" mailto: link for you to insert into your web pages. The link will function normally, but
the spammer robots cannot add your email address to their list.
Please be aware that this script won't work forever: It won't be long before the spammer robots will be able to read the kind of "hidden" mailto: links that
this script produces.
