    Default Netobjects SPAM-Free?

    I stumbled across this link, which appears to be on an old section of the
    NetObjects website.

    http://www.netobjects.com/workbench/spamfree.html

    Does anyone have a clue whether this would work in NOF 10?

    Thanks.

    I prefer this http://www.bitmotion.com/products/superspamfree.asp much
    better. It's a component which, when installed, automatically
    obfuscates all email addresses on all sites, rather than having to do
    them one by one. Set it and forget it.

    But control whether the component is set to be published in Publish view
    every now and then. - Though I am not sure whether spam bots can't
    read the code. Isn't it set in Unicode?

    I thought they were ASCII numbers or something like that... and yes,
    I've always presumed that it would be pretty easy bot bots to interpret
    that. It surprises me that email obfuscators still claim to be
    effective... but they do claim that. In reality, the best thing is not
    to put any email addresses on a web site... and use forms instead.

    Hi Laurence,

    Yes, the Bitmotion SpamFree component (which still works fine under NOF
    10 as long as you install it on NOF 7 and manually copy it to the NOF 10
    ...\components folder) obfuscates all e-mail addresses in the site by
    substituting ANSI codes for the characters in the address itself and the
    linked "mailto:" address.

    And you're right, that's not enough anti-spam protection these days...

    The bad news is that forms can easily be spammed too. My site`s original
    "contact us" form was getting hit by a trickle that grew to more than
    100 spams a month when I finally got fed up and redesigned the form.

    I redesigned the form to allow very limited free-form text input,
    display a warning and the would-be-sender's IP address (which I also
    enclose in the form`s CFMail output). Since then, I haven't had a single
    spam from it.

    I also haven't had a single nibble from a maybe web dev customer from it
    either, but that's obviously a different problem :-(.

    Karl, yes... form spam is becoming more and more of a problem. Could
    you explain your solution a little further? I've played with Captcha
    but I've gotten so sick of that... wish there was a better way. Damn
    spammers.

    I have a interesting way of stopping spammers and it seems to work well. I
    have not got a single spam from that email address. :-)
    Here is the code I use.
    -
    <a href='mailto:webmasterATlearnNOF.creationtidbitsDO Tcom?body=Please fix
    the email address above by changing the AT and the DOT<br>I have done that
    to cut out spam. Thank you'>Micah Klesick</a>

    It seems funny, but works well.

    Well, that certainly would work. So would not providing your customers
    with a way of contacting you. But be realistic... you can't make a
    website for client and then provide them with a solution like that.

    I don't use it for clients websites, only mine. :-) I was playing with
    different ways to stop spammers, and that worked better than anything else.
    I would not use it for a client though.
