Re: Anyone else getting website SPAM?

You see this a lot from PHP (ie: Wordpress sites). Many times, they just grab the address and then set up a bot to submit form entries. The idea is to use the form to send spam to others. I used to get this all the time with my PHP forms. I no longer do contact forms for this reason as I generally have better luck with just an email link.

For deeper security, you can include routines in your code that verify addresses, backtrack IPs, confirm entries, bounce back errors or problems, etc, etc. Do a search for secure PHP mail form.

Save early. Save often.
