  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.
