    Please obscure the email addresses on this site! I googled my own email address, and there was was my email address on your web page:

    www(dot)winvistatips(dot)com(slash)windows-genuine-advantage-kb892130-installation-failure-t258586(dot)html

    Having unobfuscated email addresses on the open web simply gives them to the spammers, whose "harvester bots" roam the web looking for email addresses. By putting contributors' addresses out on the open web, you are simply inviting spammers to bury your contributors in ads for viagra and pyramid schemes.

    My email address is ncdave4life at (gmail.com). Please fix this!

    Thank you,
    Dave
