Gogear GuestBook getting 'robo' spammed!
My Guest Book is getting blasted with scummy poker site spam - around 70 comments a day that I have to sift through and delete.
Is there a way I can stop this 'robot' spammer and have guests enter a code or something before they can post a comment?
Or is there some other thing I can do?
I have all comments now set to 'hidden' until I give them the ok, but it still means I have to check and delete up to 70 entries of this garbage a day.
Any suggestions welcome.

We are aware of these problems and have been systematically blocking the spammers from posting. However, we cannot yet auto-clean your guestbooks. Also, the spammers like to move around so this is still a work-in-progress.

But we are working on it.

Thanks JP, glad to hear that at least you are aware of it and working on it. Today, for the first time (so far!)the rats haven't infested the nest!

Thanks, JP -

It's good to hear that somebody is finally working on this. About a month ago, I made a similar post and Tom said there wasn't much that could be done.

Things have slacked off slightly, but I still get 1-2 spams a day. I just wish they would stop.
