Hello,

Just noticed the Spambot Email Protector plugin is no longer available. https://www.interactivetools.com/plugins/spambot-email-protector/

Curious as to why it was removed? We have some sites with updates planned that are using it, so was wondering about compatibility.

Best,
Steve

Hi Steve, 

We were just archiving some of the older plugins, but I put it back online for you:

Let us know if there are any PHP 8 issues with it and we can update the code as needed.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Dave. Since it was being archived, do you feel methods used are irrelevant with the advancements of bots?

Hi Steve, 

I would bet it still works quite well and that most bots wouldn't be bothered to anticipate or handle that level of obfuscation.  It was archived more because it wasn't related to our core services.  It's no problem, we can leave it up there if people still find it to be a useful script.
