Mental note added. :-)
I want to figure out something that would be difficult for a spammer to
abuse. Using a web form does add a small barrier, but one that can be
circunvented without a huge ammount of work.
Perhaps each day the web form could display a different PNG image with the
days keyword. The user simply has to type it on a text field to send the
email. Since spam robots can't read PNG images (at least, not if you use
GIMP's blur filter) this is a very reliable anti-spam method.
