SpamButcher Launches SpamFreeze - A Free Anti-Spam Tool for Webmasters and Bloggers
SpamFreeze is a free anti-spam tool for use by webmasters, Bloggers or anyone who needs to provide their email address online without risk of getting spammed.
Users can get setup with SpamFreeze via http://www.spambutcher.com/spamfreeze/
Spammers frequently obtain addresses to spam by use of "spider programs"- pieces of computer code which crawl the web looking for email addresses and other data. Publishing your mail address on a website or blog can quickly leave your inbox buried in spam. SpamFreeze hides your email from spiders, reducing the amount of junk email you receive.
SpamFreeze works by encrypting the user's mail address within a URL. This URL can then be inserted into any webpage, weblog or online forum where they want other users to be able to contact them.
After clicking the link, the user is prompted to identify a word jumbled within an image. This helps to confirm they are really a human as opposed to a spider program collecting email addresses. After doing so, they are allowed to view the other user's actual email address.
Users with an existing spam problem should consider installing the SpamButcher spam filter program. SpamButcher's free trial version can be be downloaded from www.spambutcher.com.
