    There are multiple programs available that allow you to set key words and start pages to crawl the internet for email addresses relevant to your niche.

    Are these legal to use? Farming candidate for invite systems?

    These programs are part of the reason people post their emails like this - me(at)google(dot)com

    Using harvested addresses is a misdemeanor under the CAN SPAM act.
