Fun fact

Spam emails are usually very annoying and affect work – and there is nothing funny about it. But did you know that the term Spam, referring to junk mail, was named after a famous Monty Python sketch?

My website has been smashed (thousands of submissions) for the last few days with "Canada Pharmacy" SPAM on a ninja form contact us form. Its been an ongoing problem for months and somehow they have gotten around reCaptcha and honey pots and any other thing I can throw in their way. I have spent countless hours deleting emails and stored records. I gave up and just turned off the form. This plugin has saved me! Ninja forms has some security problems, mainly allowing reCaptcha to be bypassed and all form validation is done client side. This plugin is a quick and simple solution to unwanted submissions using the existing WP spam filters.
