Description : Web page email address poison for email harvesters
(Include the long description here.)
Generate a random list of real-looking bogus email
addresses in the form of an HTML mailing list page.
The WWW page is dynamically made and full of convincingly lifelike - but
completely bogus - email addresses that spambots can pick up and add to
their hitlists. The page also contains randomly generated links that the
bot inevitably follows - links that loop right back to the same page,
now re-armed with a fresh set of random fake email addresses.
This program can be used to combat the junk email problem by effectively
poisoning the databases of those gathering programs that regularly scan
web pages looking for email addresses to harvest.
