Want a simple way to reduce spam submissions?

On you form, create a bunch on input fields with common names such as name, subject, title, phone, email, etc. Use CSS to hide these fields. Then use non-standard names for your regular fields.

When you process your form data, if ANY of the hidden fields contain data, dump the form. Done!

I also process some names backwards, and compare different field contents with their mirror selves to see if they have been fiddled with. As they are all hidden, they should all be perfect. If not, no form for you!
