I find it funny that my most visited page is ADDURL and GUESTBOOK.
I am assuming it is due to being a Form page, and that my come-often guests are BOTS.

I got Cptcha up, so I guess that is stopping the BOTS from submitting.... For now

I wish there was a way I could give them a present. hehehehe.

I already have a page that is full of dynamically generated FAKE Emails for harvesters. But nothing for this Loyal BOTS that come visit me so often.

Too Bad IP Addresses can be faked, If i truly could identify them as being a BOT, I would redirect them to some place nice, like a popup Test site.

You and everyone else. If you can, avoid using any pages with the following filenames, or any hyphenated variations:


Also avoid using any related keywords in the page copy. Be as creative as possible when you reword your text, and just rename your files with numbers or random words.

However, I'm finding that more or less all forms get spam attempts, no matter what they are named. These measures might stem the tide, but it keeps on coming.

Yes they do... FUN FUN

I already have some pages with Forms that have ODD names.

I just created a Page with a Form, I set the page to DISALLOW in Robots and metatags set to NOFOLLOW.

This form on Submit does nothing with Input, but Redirects after submit to a popup testing site. I know that won't help fight the tide, but puts a smile on my face.

So far CAPTCHA is keeping them out on my other Forms.

I also Noticed that if the form required multiples submits as in a wizard... the do not go past first Submit.
