Hello I have a client that is using an email address for contact us. Spam bots have been harvesting their email address off the page. My preference is to use a contact form with a captcha. Is there a best practice for either or? I have read some similar posts that are supportive of both. Thanks
Personally, I always much prefer to at least have the option of writing emails in my email client. That way I at least have an audit trail of what I sent and when, and some level of confidence that it arrived.
One simple way to allow this, by hiding the mailto: link behind Captcha protection, is using Google's free mailhide service.
