To prevent the apparent disadvantage with hidden addresses, why
not give CGI::ContactForm::MHonArc a try? http://www.mhonarc.org/archive/html/mhonarc-users/2004-01/msg00039.html

This can still be used to send anonymous spam to people who post to the list.

Well, yes, so can all contact forms, of course, but unlike spam due to address harvesting, it's typically not a problem worth mentioning. Btw, the form generated messages include REMOTE_ADDR, which I believe makes the tool of extra little value to such 'amateur spammers'.

Or are you referring to more sophisticated ways of abusing the script
for doing bad things? If you have anything particular in mind, please
let me know.
