Ever wanted to share your email address with someone in a public forum, website contact info, blog comments and so on but don't want your email address to be discovered by spam bots that crawl the internet? Scr.im can help.

Scr.im is a very simple service that can convert your email address into a short, cute and safe link you can share on the web, in Twitter, forums, Craigslist, anywhere. It works like this: You add your email address to Scr.im, it gives you a small URL—like this one—that requires you to pass a captcha to view the email address.
