    I used the simple ASCII munge at <http://www.addressmunger.com/> on my
    web site and have not had any spam. You may wish to take the extra
    step, which I use for my "primary email account", and forward it to a
    gmail account. The gmail mail, less the spam, can then be forwarded to
    the email account at ISP.

    I've had second thoughts about this. The address on the web site is
    . I have also enabled, but not published, most of the
    addresses listed in RFC2142 <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2142>.
    Since RFC2142 and every domain name on the Internet must be known to
    spammers it now seems more likely to me that spammers choose not to
    send email to info, postmaster etc and that my mungeing may not be why
    I have not received any spam.
