     This is the ASP version of a CGI technique used to scare off spammers (or at least to make things harder for them) that use email extractors to collect addresses from web sites. The script generates a random number of fake Email addresses and URLs that call itself in an endless loop. The result: email extractors get clogged with fake addresses. A META tag tells search engine robots not to index the page. To use just rename the file to anything you want (example: test.asp) and put a hidden link to it on your site, like this: [A HREF="wpoison.asp"][/A] (replace [] with <> respectively). Please help spread the word about web poisoning, it might not stop spammers, but will surely slow them down!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
