PLEASE take a minute to read this page, before using my e-mail address,
My e-mail address is "a08 at mdjnet dot dk".
At least it is at the moment...
The reason I write it like this is that I don't want to be spammed!
Clearly, "at" means a '@', and "dot" means '.', in case you wonder.
You can also read it in this picture:
I keep my address a well kept public secret to avoid that the spammers get
their greasy hands on it.
They have a nasty habbit of scanning home pages for addresses to abuse.
But you can do a lot to protect it as well!
By following a few rules, the chances that the spammers will get this address
are very small, and if they do, I will simply delete this address and create a
So, if this address some day doesn't work anymore, check this page again.
Please treat this e-mail address as an unlisted phone number.
You don't give those away to strangers neither, so here are the rules:
- Don't ever give my e-mail to any home page or service on the
internet, like greeting cards, societies offering to send invitations to join,
pages offering merchandise or anything else.
Chances are I do NOT want to join, and if I do, I probably want to use a
different e-mail address anyway.
Send me a link to the page instead.
- Do NEVER include my address in any chain letters of any kind or
signature collections, no matter what the subject may be; jokes, peace on
earth, saving the whales, or get a thousand packages of chewing gum.
Only fools participate in chain letters, and I don't want a bunch of fools
to know my e-mail address.
- If you MUST refer someone else to me, give them a link to this page
instead of giving them my e-mail address directly.
That way they can also be sure to actually get a valid address, and they have
a chance to read the rules.
- When writing an e-mail to several recipients, remember to write the
addresses in the BCC field instead of the TO or CC field.
(If you are using Microsoft Outlook, go to the View menu and check the
BCC menu item to make that field visible.)
Addresses in the BCC field are not visible to the other recipients, while
addresses in TO and CC are.
The other recipients probably haven't read this page, so don't just show them
my e-mail address.
- If you get some kind of virus you want to warn me about, or simply a
virus warning you want to send to me as instructed in the warning,
To say it the simplest possible way:
I don't get viruses, and virus warnings are always hoaxes, trying to trick
people into deleting something, or even worse; install a virus!
I have got other things to waste my time on.
As you can see, I consider my e-mail address to be very private and I am
prepared to go a long way to keep it private.
I know having a page like this makes it more difficult to mail me than just
clicking a "mailto" field on the index page, but hey, thank the spammers for
ruining the Internet!
