(MUHN-jing) The act of altering an e-mail address posted on a Web page to make it unreadable to bots and harvesters that crawl the Web for e-mail addresses to include on spam lists.

The characters to the left of the @ symbol in your e-mail address should not be altered when munging.
For example, munging the [email protected] e-mail address could result in something like fakeaddress-AT-definithing-DOT-com.
The term munge is frequently defined as “mash until no good” and is also called address munging.
