Address Munging

Address Munging
Address Munging makes an email address difficult to read by email harvesters.

Address Munging is the process of modifying an e-mail address to make it invalid, but in such a way that a legitimate (human) reader can put it back together again. This technique is used to hide (valid) e-mail addresses from e-mail harvesters (and thus reduce the likelihood of receiving spam).
