    Why do so many posters put all the X's in their email address? I doesn't make any sense to me.

    Automated phishing programs will pull e-mail addresses off websites like this.

    Some folks think that by adding xx's to their e-mail address, these automated address scavengers won't be able to recognize them as a valid e-mail address
