    Post Spider'd AntiOnline

    Hey, I might catch some flack for this one...

    > Iíve been working on a www spider that uses search patterns (example: [a-z0-9]+@[a-z0-9]+[.][.a-z0-9]+) - of course every good program needs testing... I decided to scan AntiOnline.com for email addresses (wondering if some of the members were vuln to spammers) indeed they might be... I found ~= 2006 email addresses, I say approximate for my program picked up a few non-email patterns (the pattern I used was something like *@*.*)

    > I was thinking of posting all the email addresses- but Iím not sure if that's a good idea... anyway, just wanted everyone to know... might think twice before posting your email in a form?

    > Again- I hope I don't get any crap - I was just curious

    > Take it easy!
    yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

    i used Microsoft Visual Basic for win2k...
    i'm currently working on a Perl Script version of the code- although there are somany already available... the app that i wrote makes things a bit-easier for end-users... pretty gui, etc... anyway- if you'd like i'll post the code... it's an Open Source project (on planetsourcecode.com) - i simply mod' the code... anyway

    take it easy!
