The Cardiff BSAC Forums are fully interactive and use "Third Party" php scripts to write pages on the fly from information held in databases, and are password protected to restrict access to members of Cardiff BSAC.
The following web pages are also interactive, and permit visitors to post information directly to pages that are written on the fly from information held in a database. Email links on these interactive pages use a script call to write the email address to a new browser window on the fly.

These basic precautions should offer some protection against bots used to harvest email addresses.
