By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  One of the easiest ways to help insure that a site visitor
provides you with pertinent information about their geographical
location is to make your email address a little harder to "read".

I put the word "read" in quotation marks because I don't want to give
the impression that the address should be inaccessible. However,
instead of actually listing the address in a 'mailto:' link, use your
name and have the link lead to an Email Form on a new web page. Then,
using the form elements, list all of the information you want the
visitor to provide in the "required" field.

Naturally, this is no guarantee that people will list legitimate
information, but it's a step in the right direction.
