Geeks With Blogs
Staff of Geeks Staff

I don't know about you guys, but over the past couple months, I have been getting a lot of SPAM via the Contact page on my blog.  I knew this would happen since it would be extremely easy to scrap the site and find this page on every blog with a simple form to fill out. 

Since this has been a huge problem, we added CAPTCHA to this form.  Just like adding a comment, this process makes it very difficult to automate auto filling and submitting.  This will not stop spammers who are willing to fill out the form using human interaction or very sophisticated system that can break the CAPTCHA, but 95% (estimate) of the spam will fall off.  Sorry it took me so long to implement this.
