How many times have you had to worry about getting spams in your email before posting your email id in a forum or for that matter in your own blog? I too face this dilemma everytime I decide to post my email id either for my readers or in some forums.
Spammers usually have software programs which crawl various websites for email addresses and once they get your email address they start sending you all sorts of unwanted emails.
To prevent your email id from being misused, you can do a number of things. You might have noticed, in many places, people write their email id’s as example [at] example [dot] com
Well, this may help, but for how long. The software programs will get smarter and start retrieving email id’s of this type too. Here comes a far better option. Putting up an image containing your email id rather than writing text. Images are usually not readable by software programs.
There are quite a few sites where you can convert your email id’s to images for posting them safely in other sites. Below are few of the sites that I liked (Click on any of the image to create a similar one for yourself):
