Actor Website Tip #34

Be careful with listing your personal email or phone number

You may or may not be aware of controversy of whether or not people should use their email and phone number on their website.

Some people use tricks to full robots from scraping their private information like info (at) iadb (dot) com, not only does it look ridiculous but also most scraping robots can be easily adjusted to retrieve that information as well.

Even more ridiculous is when people list their phone number in the following format: eight-five-five four-six-eight four-two-three-two.

Let me put it this way, if you're a conspiracy theorist (or have your own reasons) and you're afraid your information will be leaked and used for evil, simply don't list it on your website. You can just as well create a form that emails you when visitors fill it out.
