Fending off automated mass electronic mail: How to distinguish yourself from a computer

  • Tibor Beke

Abstract

Is there a way for e-mail addresses to be openly available, if their owners so desire, on the Net, yet preventing the current practice of harvesting email-addresses by the thousands for unsolicited email advertisements? I propose a solution, and examine the phenomenology of mass e-mail in a somewhat broader context.
