Despite the fact that Shopify has native contact forms, staffers on the forums, support, and Gurus always suggest using JotForm, Wufoo, et al. Feels like a total cop out.

When will there be a native Captcha? Surely the clamouring has not gone unnoticed?

While I agree that Captcha is a missing feature, I have found the flexibility/cost of the shopify form much better to be honest.

Also have used this work around for those that started to see some spam

I agree. Also as Jason points out in that thread, a javascript-only captcha is not without its own flaws.

I agree rick... it isn't an end all be all solution regardless of what way you go with it though. There are still sites with true captcha that get spam :)
