Help stop spam e-mail by blocking e-mail 'bots' from getting your e-mail off of your site.

Preventing your e-mail that you placed on your site from being found by spammers is very hard. Some have even taken their e-mail addresses off their sites and replaced them with contact forms to prevent this. Here is a neat .htaccess method to help put a stop to this. This will stop many of the 'bots' or e-mail collecting softwares from sucking e-mail addresses from web pages and adding them to their spam lists. However this will not work 100% of the time, as some do not identify themselves, but its a good start.
