Archives of Weblog additions, 1999–2000

What is spam?

How do you hide addresses, you ask? The cheap way is to type your address in To: and everyone else’s in Bcc:. Or just give the list a title, like Webloggers, add a colon and space to that title, list all the addresses with commas between them, and end with a semicolon. Example:

To: Webloggers:,,;

which will resolve to the form To: Webloggers: ;.
