I think that is not really a link, Ann, but a sort of a picture of a link to foil spammers and such. Try typing the letters one by one on the address field of your browser instead of doing copy/paste and see if that works. Hope this helps!

It seems to be an image of a link to an email address. If it were an actual text link, clicking it would open your mail program and set up a new message to that address. Typing it into the address bar of a browser won't get you anywhere.

Just open your mailer program and type the email address into the "To:" field of a new message.

Why, thank you, kind peeps. Lois, you are now my friend and I forgive you for beating me to the rubber ducky, and Peter, I am sure you have it exactly.

My problems is often the paucity of my vocabulary in these matters. When I said "address field" I thought that was what you called the "hereunto..." space at the top of an email, which was where I was trying to paste my ghostly copy of bugger all.

I would never have known it was a trompe l'oeuil device for the confusion of beelzebots if you hadn't told me, and I'd still have been clicketting hopelessly with a growing sense of persecution.

I am forever in your debt.

Peter is most certainly right! It's an email address, not a site address. (Definitely a senior moment on my part). Glad to be your (rather obtuse) friend!

P.S. If I'd known you were competing for the Shakespeare ducky, Ann, I would have humbly deferred! As it was, that was what got me started on submitting poetry - pure and simple beginner's luck!

If that's really what set you a-going, then the luck was not just yours - it was everybody's - hurrah!

I've just seen your question, Ann. Glad the spam-proof email twist has been straightened out for you by Lois and Peter. I think I should add another note thingie there to minimize frustration for others who might be tempted to click!

Cheers,
...Alex

Good idea, Alex, though perhaps not many of your intending submissives are as innocent as I am with regard to such devious wheezes.

I thought you defeated them (the Beelzebots, that is) by writing out the address with the @s in grown-up writing, and when it was in a different colour it was up for clicks.

But it was the uncopiableness that really threw me - how do you DO that?

Alex, in a reminder that time is fleeting, writes:

Eratosphereans, submit, submit! 2 few, > 1 dozen in thus far!!! Since this event is only targeted to Sphereans (& not outsiders), you've got to submit!

Outsiders? Are outsiders trying to enter? Are you sure that some addle-brained member(s) didn't just simply forget to sign his or her name?

Sorry not to have commented sooner on this (I have been flat out like a lizard hit by a truck), but big thanks to Alex for arranging anonymous judging this time in addition to all his other organising work--I notice and appreciate.
