Home Forums Other Captcha and Spam blocking Reply To: Captcha and Spam blocking


Something I noticed on a site I managed a few years ago, that had a few forms on one page – only the first form ever got spammed. I tested on a few other sites at the time, and same pattern; The spam bots hit the form highest in the HTML and never continued to the ones lower down, so I sometimes use this observation as an extra deterrent (even now), and put a fake form higher up the page and hide it with CSS.
