I read an article a couple of months ago about using JavaScript to activate a clickable mailto: link after a few seconds delay, as a possible method of avoiding spam.

There was a little more to it than that - I seem to remember the email address was encrypted somehow.

But my Google skills have let me down and I can't find the article again.

I think it was a blog post on someone's webdesign page, but who's I've no idea.

Anybody seen it? The internet is a big place!!
