'''Masking''' [[email address]]es involves altering the [[email address|address]] to make it understandable to the [[recipient]] but confusing to [[automated]] [[harvesting]] [[software]]. For instance, masking could involve writing out the words "at," "dot," and "com" (or other [[Top-level domain]]) and separate each segment of the [[email address]] with spaces. For example, using this masking technique, the unmasked [[email address]] "johndoe@ftc.gov" would appear in its masked version as "johndoe at ftc dot gov."
