  • Web forms - A Way of the Past?

Comments Jan 4, 2010 12:41 pm

Your spam results may also have been affected by a robots.txt file (or similar methods), preventing some robots (those that obey a robots.txt file) from reading your email address. This doesn't stop all the nasty robots out there, but it does keep your email address out of Google's and Microsoft's search results. I cannot, however, say with certainty whether we've implement any robot-blocking technology.That said, I would be greatly in favor of getting rid of the email forms. There are currently at least three different flavors of that form in use, and they're difficult to maintain. About once a month, we get either a complaint about the forms malfunctioning, or a feature request.
