I hate spam – I get a ton of it. For those of you who need to have publicly listed email accounts, this is the best solution I’ve found for obfuscating your publicly listed email. It encodes via rot13 (a common cipher which rotates all letters 13 steps). It maintains the mailto: feature (clickability) and features a pure CSS fallback (can’t be clicked, but reverses your email in the code and displays it correctly via CSS) which works for folks who don’t have js enabled for some reason.
