Bob,

Confirm to Tim as soon as possible that you got his e-mail address. 

Then:

Tim,

As quick as you can, click "modify" on your previous reply and erase your email addy.

Forums are a good place for the spammers to (automatically) pick up new target adresses. 

It may not help, but I type "at" for the @ character, and "dot" for the "." character if I post my address on the board.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

Tim, got it in my book.  You might want to hide it again.  Thanks

Like Joe said, a good way to avoid the "spiders" is to show email as:

bobatserverdotnet  Knowledgeable members can decipher. You can even give instructions.  Spammers don't read the forum, but their spiders scan all the time for the "@" sign.

I have noticed some of the train websites use "dotcom" instead of .com

Bob, you said,"Paul, If you remember I stomped on you last week. Oh, sorry, Santa is watching."
Your in BIG trouble. You'll get a lump of coal this year.
