I’ve been doing business on the internet for almost 15 years and have my email address on hundreds of web pages. Needless to say, I get a lot of pointless email.
Still, the thousands upon thousands of spam messages I have to wade through (even after applying spam filters) are just one of the costs of doing business. I know that there are other ways to have people get in touch with you, but I don’t regret having my email address so widely available. Nothing works as well for one-on-one communication.
The idea that the inconvenience of dealing with spam would force me to give up the most direct way for someone interested in our products to get in touch is just too high a price to pay. It just doesn’t make sense to create barriers that stand in the way of a real dialogue with anyone who takes time to look at our web offerings.
In case your interested, the address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
