Foiling Spam Bots

Hello,

I've used the following format on my web pages: <a
href=mailto(E-Mail Removed)>.

I know that there is a way to use the preceding so as to make the address
either unreadable or unusable to spam bots but do not know what to add or
alter.

Can anyone inform me of what I have to do?

Like most people, I absolutely detest spam and spammers, and really don't
look forward to receiving their trash.

TIA!

Marti

You're replying to a troll, impersonating Mara.
FYI, the troll posts from various remailers such as
DIZUM & (E-Mail Removed)
Mara *only* posts through Giganews.
Check the troll's headers against Mara's REAL headers:-
