    Why would google submit random info to my opt in form? To crawl my thank you page as well?

    Maybe the Google Spider has become self aware and is filling out opt in forms to increase its brain power!!

    Did you make sure that it was actually a google bot and not a malicious bot?

    that email doesn't seem to be generated by random, it seems that a person typing random characters they are all in the same raw and in the right/left no characters from the middle of the keyboard

    Just a thought

    I get this kind of stuff all the time on the contact page of one of my clickbank websites. I always assumed it was some kind of automated bot or software because I get a ton of offers for other CB products as well.

    It is automated software trying to harvest emails or find places to sneak in a back link. Nothing you can do to stop it really.

    hahaha! you guys are so funny :D

    but yeah - thats true google could be testing my form works - I would believe that.

    It says mountainview and I know mountainview is good!
    And there was no referrer.
