I’m running several blogs (via Wordpress – no this is not a Wordpress related problem. Read everything through) on my Dreamhost space and they are drawing in a new problem. I’ve got contact forms on www.boltsmag.com and www.sticksoffire.com that utilize Dreamhost’s Webform script.
My problem is simply spam. The Bots that attack (and are denied) the posts on the blogs have found the contact form and have been sending me and others messages.
At first, a simple extra question was fine and solved the problem (made the quesiton a required field) but then bots started to fill in the field with gibberish text.
My question is what can I do to fight this problem? I’ve spoken with support in the past about “Captcha support” and I hadn’t gotten a positive answer (so I assume it’s not built-in on the webform script).
