    Question Hiding a phone number from bots.

    I have looked on the internet to find information on blocking bots from
    reading your phone number but I did not have very much luck. I could not find anything that I could understand enough to actually make use of.

    Dose anyone here know of a good way to block bots
    from being able to read your phone number?

    I guess I've never really heard of bots looking for telephone numbers. What would the purpose of that be? Are you getting spam phone calls?

    Anyhow, you can make this "Telephone: 819-xxx-xxxx" a PNG or GIF image instead of plain text. White text on a black 'transparent' color selection.
