Spam to encoded email

Disturbing. I’m getting spam on an email address that I had thought was safely javascript protected. This means that unscrupulous mass email marketers have either broken through the encoding, or they’re harvesting addresses manually to add to their insiduous spam lists.

How much spam do you get in a day?


  1. Easily 30-40 messages per day.

  2. Valerie says:

    On my worst account it can be as much as 50/day.

  3. The Dane says:

    Ha. I signed a post on Brandon’s php/javascript comment system as and recently he’s been getting spammail to that account. And that’s the only place I’ve ever used the e-ddress. Spooky, huh?

  4. Vix says:

    on various e-mail addresses up to 10. Sometimes all I get is spam!

  5. reggie says:

    around 10-30. it depends. when i was on hotmail (eons ago), i used to get around 50+ spam mails in one day. eek.

  6. Tek says:

    Wow, compared to you guys, I get a remarkable tally (hotmail, domain mail & postmark): about 5-8/day. FIFTY PLUS IS WOW?!

  7. Richard says:

    I get over 200 a day on my Hotmail account, but that’s without spam protection. *With* spam protection it’s 20 or so. (It’s because I use that account to very infrequently post to Usenet).

    One better (if still temporary) solution would be to have an email form done in PHP. They’re easy to make.
