I’ve got it…

Concerned about spider-monkeys or web-scrapers stealing your email address and spending all your money on Ebay.  Cross your eyes and write your address like this.

Use a mirror to decipher or better yet, copy the letters as you read them aloud from end to front.  I spent hours and hours and hours trying to decide on a way to protect my email address and then my ten year old said, “papa, why don’t you just do it like this…”  Go to bed kid!

Oh ya, I teach in the delta school district

Yeah that’s a good one. Also, maybe there is a JavaScript script that could be created to decode it when someone mouses over the address. Almost all spiders aren’t sophisticated enough to run JavaScript.
