    Hi guys

    I'm decent with scrapebox, however I've not found a way to get past websites where the number or email is concealed with a "click cover" (I don't know the exact word its called). Anyone know the way to get around this? I want to scrape some sites for details. Preferably with scrapebox.

    Why bother with these websites? They are not in the 1% that is going to convert anyway.

    why not if you are offering something related to business? besides many of those small businesses use some cheap stone-age hosting with virtually no spam filters.

    if scrapebox doesnt use javascript there is no way of getting those protected mails

    Businesses that put javascript on the way of scrapers do it for a reason, no matter the hosting company. You're not going to get a reply from these businesses, unless you target them properly. And you cant really do proper targeting with mass emailing. No matter how good your offer is, you'll be nothing but a spammer in their eyes.
