Well!!! I have been taken to task.

Since this website's launch in early July 2006, there has been a puzzle for people to crack, to figure out my email address.

However, in the last couple of days, I've had an email from an annoyed person who is less than impressed at my little ego-trip! - and I've taken the matter to heart, and decided to be a bit less of a "pain". (Perhaps it was somewhat "over the top"...)

I've still left the puzzle in, just as it was - and you're more than welcome to tackle it if you like that sort of thing. However, if you really don't, just scroll down to the bottom of this page and you'll find the solution there, all laid out for you.

Can't say fairer than that!

In case you would like to see the original content of this page, here it is:


So, you want to send me an email, do you?

Well, if you're the sort of intelligent visitor I'm hoping to attract to this website - someone who likes to share ideas, perhaps engage in some sensible debate, maybe offer constructive criticism - no doubt you'll be able to figure out my email address without too much trouble; and we can have a civilized conversation.

On the other hand, with a bit of luck, others with less brain-power - "spammers", "flamers" and their ilk - will find it all too difficult, and I won't have to be bothered by them.

So, just what is my email address? Well, have a look at this:

It's not - but it is in there somewhere!

Here are a few clues to make it a bit easier:

- it's perfectly pronounceable, and has three syllables;

- the first and last letters (different from each other) are both consonants;

- the second and second-last letters are both vowels.

Well, there you are - that's almost giving it away!

Any spam that does get through this natural filter will be treated with the contempt it deserves: straight into the trash, to be deleted seconds later. Any flames that slip through will be treated similarly, perhaps after I've had a bit of a laugh at the stupidity of some people.

If you're in the first group - an intelligent visitor - please do me a favour, and don't pass my email address to anyone you may happen to know in the second group! (Anyway, presumably you wouldn't - because if you did, you would thereby immediately leave the first group and become a member of the second; and I'm sure you've got far too much self-respect to do a dumb thing like that.)

Fair enough?
