They probably do. You need to add "WebPoison". Most address-sucking
bots are programmed to avoid any mention of wpoison and CGI, but
there's a way to make it look like a real page. Listed as a link
to a page called "members" or "contacts" it's very attractive to
spambots. Just be sure to put in a directory where real robots
will not go by using the robots.txt protocols.
