I wrote a blog post last year about “How to Stop Contact Form Spam” and it seems to do the job to weed out the bots from hitting your form processing script automatically and submitting a bunch of spam. However, it looks like one of my websites is getting hit manually by a person or script – they are filling out all of the required fields with a valid-formatted email address and actually clicking the submit button to access the confirmation page. However, they are flooding the “Message” textarea box with thousands of pharmaceutical words, some of which are hyperlinked to their spam sites. The most logical way I can think of to combat these spammers is to screen out all submissions that have keywords in the anchor text of any links submitted. I don’t want to disallow URLs completely, but only those that contain custom anchor text. I’ve Googled variations of “anchor text contact form spam” but have come up with nothing.
