Sudden huge increase in Netlify form spam submissions getting through

Example form on our site: 15 Best Podcasts For Learning Korean (Beginner To Advanced) (see comment section at the bottom of the page)

There’s been a flood of spam form submissions getting through lately. We’re using netlify-honeypot (haven’t changed anything). Don’t want reCaptcha on the site for performance reasons, and honeypot has been perfectly sufficient until the past week or so.

Is there anything server-side that changed recently (e.g. outdated Akismet) to make this start happening?
