which deliver mail without exposing the address to public view (and
Of course, e-mail accounts that appear on Web pages (including list
archives) and Usenet newsgroups will keep getting spam until Doomsday
because they're never purged from some lists. The only way around
_that_ problem I'm aware of is to always use plus-addressing when using
an e-mail address in public.
