My spam email count, as a result of my participation on this website, has gone, in the last few months, from many each day, to dozens, and then to scores. I fear, with the Pajamas Media thing, it will go to hundreds. I seem to recall Glenn Reynolds telling me he has gotten over 500 spam emails per day. And I specifically recollect Larry Elder telling me he gets over 3000 per day (but, of course, he has a couple of guys working for him, to filter that crap).

And I’m thinking we need some “contact us” page, or JavaScript thing, to defeat the robo-crawlers – that just want to spam everybody with a webpage..

What to do?
