Scr.im gives you a tiny URL for your email

31Mar09

Scr.im is a neat little tool that allows you to create an original URL that you can share on Twitter, Facebook, forums, and anywhere else that you don’t want to publish your real email address.

All you need to do is enter in your email address on the scr.im homepage and enter in a custom URL which will lead people to your real email address.  If you don’t care about a custom URL then scr.im will create one for you.  Whenever you need to share your email in a public forum, just enter in your scr.im URL.  The link will bring people to another page where they need to pass a captcha (a not-so-annoying captcha) in order to see your real email address.  If you’re a regular target of spambots because of posting your real email address on the Web, then you may want to give scr.im a look.
