Spam proof your email address

For those of you that have your own websites I found a cool way of making it harder for spammers to get your email address.

Then people that want to contact you have to transcribe 2 words before they will give them the email address.

All you do is register your email address with (no you don't even have to sign up, just click email protection). Then add that link they give you into your webpage.

I'm not much of a script writer, so the only problem I had was making their webpage open in as a new page. But I now have it running on my blog & google pages.
