I have a php email form that I use for my customer's web sites. this is suppose to stop robots from getting the email address, but now all kinds of porm spam is coming through this form. by the volume that comes through i can not believe that it is an actual person filling out the forms. Has anybody else had this experience or know what I can do about it?

You may want to add some sort of "human authentication" thing, like those enter the text that appears in the picture type things. You could also try setting a minimum amount of time between submissions.

Robots can fill out forms and hit the submit button. You need to add captcha or something (Even though it is flawed and not perfect).
