Default Post real email addresses if you want reply.

To Everybody:

If you really want a reply to a technical question, post your REAL email
address. I have seen several worthwhile projects and questions posted, but
the poster doesn't have the guts to supply a real return address.

nobody@nowhere.com and other such return addresses are bogus, and a waste of
everybody's time that seriously use newsgroups.

If anybody has a serious technical question, I am always more than happy to
give my wisdom or point others in the direction to someone that can address
their problem.

My background is engineering, manufacturer and building contractor, with a
particular interest in renewable energy.

No SPAM please.

and why would you need a good email address for a post on usenet. it's
awfully rude to ask a question in a group and then expect the answers to
be emailed to you...might be more than one person who wants the answer

In a perfect world, Bob, yes. In this world of address harvesting bots, no
way. Addresses have to be disguised for the bots, but understandable by
humans. You said you did not want spam... neither do we. One of my
favorite signatures seen in a newsgroup was something like:

"Remove your clothes to respond to me"
name@yourclothes.hotmail.com

Bob, thank you for your offer to help. That truly is appreciated.

reply address bot resistant and human safe

Correction, Bob.
My email address is nowhere@nowhere.com
It has nothing to do with cowardice, and everything to do with spam.
You don't need my email address. Post your answer to the group.

Any questions, call me at (215) 646-4894
