Defending Against Email Harvesters, Leechers, and Web Beacons - http://linux.oldcrank.com/tips/antibot/
Loran T. Hughes gives advice on stopping spambots using a "sand trap" and real-time IP blackhole list similar to the one presented here, but using PHP instead of iptables - so you don't need root access to implement it. On the downside, it does require more processing on the Apache end (since PHP has to determine whether a request comes from a spambot). Very good article.

"We intend to take a look at all the different angles related to controlling spam. As a home user, what steps can be taken to limit the volume of spam that I receive? As a network administrator, what steps can I take to control the volume of spam hitting my mail servers and entering the network? What software is available to control spam at the desktop? What server-based antispam software is available? What are governments doing to discourage spamming? The answers to all these questions and more will be found here on SpamHelp. We hope the information provided within these pages will prove useful and practical in your efforts to fight spam. Enjoy your stay and please remember to visit us on a regular basis to keep up with all the latest developments." Site also includes a Harvester Killer that generates 100 random email addresses.
Daniel Webb writes: "I have a small PHP/Apache package that will auto-ban all bots that ignore robots.txt (and email you about it if you want), with the option to unban if a person types in the password. I have so far not had a single harvester get the email on my contact page, which is not obfuscated in any way."
Email Obfuscation Tools
Thanks to Joe Tucek for the link.
A free CGI tool for easily obfuscating email addresses for inclusion in a web page. It randomly turns letters in the address into HTML entities (at least, in part of the address; parts are fully translated into HTML entities), and has recently been updated to work across browsers and email programs.
Tools like Spamstopper: "An easy and effective way for web designers to keep email addresses hidden from Email Harvesting Spiders. Mac OS X 10.1 and OS 9 savvy."
