The MuddledHyperlink control is intended to make life difficult for spammers who pilfer your site for all email addresses. It replaces the Hyperlink control for ASP.NET.
When a hyperlink is downloaded to the client, the actual link is modestly scrambled and is not descrambled until the user clicks on the link. Each visit to the page, the control selects a random algorithm to use when scrambling the email address
