It's to prevent "spammers" from scanning forum and blog sites for e-mail addresses to send their spam to. You and I know how to remove the x's, but the spammer automated systems try to send spam to the address just the way it is copied and the spam won't go through. ....Rick

Do you guys have any idea ohw easy it is to alter a spam program to include and change those XXX emails? Duck soup. You do not get spam because of yoru settings and your firewalls and such. I am one of the most public guys on the forum and in my internet business and I get no spam. And I never use XXX in my email. There was a time I had over 200 pages on google with my email address. XXXs mean nothing.
