A whole universe of ways to thwart spammers harvesting email

Snail symbolToday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had an article called "Monkeying around with the @ symbol", which was a copy of last Sunday's column by Nancy Szokan of the Washington Post, entitled "Where It's At -- and Where It's Not."

The column is about all the different names used to describe the @ symbol in internet culture around the world.

It's fun and useful because it opens up a whole universe of ways to post one's email address online and thwart those robots harvesting email addresses for purposes of spamming.
