    Does putting '[_NOSPAM_]' in your email address really stop you getting
    spam? Wouldn't a spammer just remove the same?

    Googled for convert+email+SMS

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-
    1&q=convert%2Bemail%2BSMS

    Does this help? If not you could google for

    It's a bad 'munge' for two reasons. First, it should come after the
    "@", so that spam isn't sent to a valid domain.
    Secondly, the practice is based on the premise that 'bots, not
    humans, are harvesting email addresses from Usenet. However, the phrase
    "NOSPAM" is so commonly used that some harvesting programs can recognize
    it.
