    Man I tell you it started last night. My company site is getting hit hard with people spamming the contact form.

    I am getting about 10 to 15 an hour. I am thinking about just taking the contact form off my site. Wanted to see if anyone else is getting hit on the contact form?

    I have one site that I actually put a real effort into and 95 out of 100 visitors are spammers. It sucks.

    I know this is a regular company web site. The only thing I can think of is that I did it in Wordpress and My company has to deal with SEO.

    So some newbie scraped my site and trying to get links up. lol

    I'm presuming you already have a CAPTCHA on there?

    What I do to prevent spam on my website is I've made a maths question field myself, but instead of it being "1+1=" I've made it as difficult as I can for a robot to beat it by making it such as "3 added to 2 minus 1 =".

    Haven't had a single spam message since I installed it, before then I was getting 5 - 10 per day. Yes, it does work.
