Hi All

I am starting today with a mission of action.  I would like to know what you
guys think of this.

Having embedded many contact email addreses within sites for all the right and
possitive reasons.  The point has come where spam spam spam has just sprialled
out of control.

So the plan is this.  To remove all email addresses from sites and replace them
with a contact form.  The question(s) is/are.  Is this going to stop/reduce spam
(in the long term) and will this be a more effective way for people to make
contact for whatever reason(s)?
