I have version 6.5 and am using CAPTCHA but we are still getting tons of spam through our reviews. Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone have a suggestion/solution?

I had one site where the "ask a question" just kept getting hit by the spambots. We couldn't figure out where the hole was with the default code. Customer wasn't that worried about the "ask a question" feature so we just turned it off.

But if it is important to you, then try reading the tricks in this link and then you'll have to customize your code.

Came up with my own solution.

At line 115 in shopreviewadd.asp I added this code

If RatingComment = "" Then
sError = sError & getlang("LangMenucomment") & getlang("Langcustrequired")& "<br />"
Else
'New stuff - Dissalow web links in comments.
Dim HttpLocation
HttpLocation = InStr(1, RatingComment, "http", 1)
If HttpLocation > 0 Then
sError = sError & getlang("LangMenucomment") & " cannot contain web links.<br />"
End If
'end new stuff
End If

If a link is put in the comments field the submission gets rejected. All the spam we were getting had links in them.
