Redirect-mailto: Trick

Prevents bots from siphoning your e-mail address from your website. Solves Jakob Nielsen’s primary problem with using mailto: links on his website.

The small script (~4 lines) is useful because it separates the e-mail address from the web page while still providing a way for the user to click an e-mail address link and have it open their local mailer.
