Spam is nowadays a growing concern for publishers of sites that need to provide contact addresses in their pages.

Spammers use robot programs that crawl Web pages to find and extract those contact addresses.

One way to detect whether robots have crawled and collected addresses from pages to send spam messages is to use spam trap addresses.

Spam trap addresses are not of real people. They can be associated to mailboxes processed by automated programs that can keep track of the sources of spam. Similar messages sent from the same source are very likely to also be spam.

This class can generate pages with spam trap addresses that can be used to later to track spam sources.
