NounEdit

spamblock (plural spamblocks)

  1. (computing) Text inserted into an email address in order to make it invalid, though still readable to a human being. For example, in "jsmith-[AT]-company-[DOT]-com", the "@" and "." symbols have been replaced with literal text to prevent automated spambots from finding the email address while still leaving it readable.
