Contact form spam

    Prior to last Thursday, our site had received a total of 9 spam messages that came through our contact form in the period of over a year. Since last Thursday, we’ve received over 2500!! 174 of those messages so far were missed spam that came through to my inbox. I’ve been marking all of them as spam. I saw someone else asked in the forum here recently if you guys have a way to add a field on the form to require a verification input, and the answer was no. I don’t know what happened since last Thursday that has caused us to start receiving so much spam, but it’s become a problem. If you don’t have a verification field, do you have another suggestion to ward off spam? Or how about adding this capability? It seems to me that there is a real need for it.
