Hi Julian,

Can I have your email so I can send you links to a couple of sites/blogs? They show the extent of the problem.

I've tried JavaScript catchas, but to no avail. 

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Somehow I missed this reply!

I would recommend using Disqus for you blog comments! Javascript Captcha really won't do too much for the majority of bots.

My email however is julian.nadeau[at]shopify.com .. but I would recommend just using Disqus :)

Hi Julian,

No problem at all. It looks like there was an update recently and is it's a million times better now. Plus I just filter comments with http in and spam the ones that are left.

Disqus is nice, but I assume it will embed the comments with JavaScript and I reckon it's nicer to have fresh and up to date content (i.e. comments) that are served with the page.

Cheers,

Dave

Hi,

 

I implemented this method and am still receiving spam multiple times a day. The "from" email address changes, the content of the form is the same (expect for those that aren't on this line of spam). This is one of our SKUs. I haven't clicked through on the link as it's from a spam contact
