"shoot me an email at cm9jY29AaW5zaWdodHBvb2wuY29tCg==."

could you clarify this a little?

His email address is encoded in Base64. Whenever you see what looks like random gibberish followed by ==, it's generally a Base64 encoded string. It's trivial to reverse. He's trying to weed people out.

Cool thanks. I guess I'm not a good fit then? I cant say I come across that writing JavaScript though.

maybe it's just antispam, not weedout
