Comment Author Email Addresses Enabled

A week ago I disabled links to email addresses for comment authors. Tonight, I enabled them again.

When somebody leaves a comment, I don't spam spiders harvesting their email address. Movable Type has protections against this, but they don't work. So, I stopped publishing those addresses while I worked on finding a technique that is effective.

I think I've got that technique now. I'll leave a comment on this posting. You can view the source to see what you think.

I'll publish the code here once I have a chance to finish testing and documenting it.

Apr 29 update: It's published.

re: Comment Author Email Addresses Enabled

I signed this comment with my email address (in both the name and email fields of the form). If my anti-spam protections are working, my address should not be vulnerable to harvesting.
