I'm reading this article and they use a word "demunging" of which I can't find the meaning. :thumbsup:

Example of sentence:

There have been reports of spammers demunging email addresses on occasions

Does one of our resident geniuses Know the meaning ....
Thanks.

To munge your email address is to add words that a person would know to remove before using.

From the word "munge"

munge - Wow! It's a derogatory term. We don't get many of those on here. When used in that sense it implies that you have provided information which you have intentionally altered from the original. Not Nice. The fact is, the word is most often tossed around by those in the know concerning e-mail and a contingent effort to get spammers off one's back. Let's say that your e-mail address is Venus@wayout.com and spammers jumped on that address like a five year old on a June bug. Worn out from hitting that "delete" key, in desperation you resort to that questionable practice known as "Munging". You alter your return address to read Venus.nospam@wayout.com, knowing deep in your heart that all your true friends are going to take a quick envious glance at your obvious alteration, and remove the "nospam" when they reply. Clever? You bet your bippy. Meanwhile those spammers out there are getting paid for what they do, and although I hate to admit it, they're good at it. They are masters of the art of "demunging," the removal of those sneaky little phrases you stuck in there to deceive them. Some of them even use special software to search for those extra phrases, automatically remove them from your address and, suddenly, you have been "demunged." It only hurts when you hit, "Delete."

Hello,

Do a quick google search for FOLDOC plus whatever technical word you're looking for. Foldoc is the Free Online Dictionary Of Computing. It has lots of Robert Heinlein references, as well as lots of other science fiction writers, but is mostly coputer tech jargon.

Have fun! :thumbsup:
