    Default PSA to all trying to send me PMs

    I cannot read them on this netbook and my desktop is in Ohio and I am in SC for at least 3 more weeks. So if you would like to contact me please email me at mroades@aol.com.
    And not to sound like a broken record, but if you do not spell my last name correctly, I will not get the email ;-)

    I've been told that breaking up ones e-mail is always good practice - add a space and your contacts can copy it and remove the space and get a good link. I think it's generally a privacy issue.

    I think it's a suggestion on how to avoid getting spammed by bots that look for email addresses.

    That's to avoid spam bots from picking it up and goes back years and years to when spam filters were not very sophisticated.

    These days, it's pretty much pointless. Spam bots can work around these simple and obvious masking techniques, and your email spam filter ought to be good enough to block 99.9% of the spam anyway.

    Thanks for the explanation. I am pretty much a tech-challenged individual. I don't mind deleting a bit of spam to continue this very engaging discussion on drug rules and all the ripple effects they would have.
