Netlify Forms Spam

Hi, we’re using Netlify Forms, but have been getting spam the last 2 days, what are our options? Is this just a common thing?

Here’s an example response:

Hmm, usually our akismet filter catches these:

But, fortunately, you can “post-process” them as spam by selecting in the UI and choosing “Mark as spam”. This will help train akismet as to them being spammy.

You might also want to implement a recaptcha to make it harder for robots to abuse though of course if the spammers are human that won’t help:

Sounds good, I thought I had recaptcha setup, turns out no! :ok_hand:
