Ok, I don't know if this would work and I'm not sure if it's doable, but I was thinking about something dealing with the way the algorithm generates the random form id for the username and password fields. Could we add a "seed" field in the field fest options that allows a person to put in anywhere from a 2 to a 16 character "seed" for the algorithm? The seed would then be used to generate the random characters that make up the username and password fields. Then if a spammer figured out the seed, you just change it and they're immediately thwarted. That is, assuming they can figure it out. If everyone has the ability to set their own seed, it wouldn't be that hard to keep these guys at bay for a very long time. You might have to update the algorithms every couple of years, but otherwise, it should hold for the foreseeable future. Smile

It's just an idea. Use and abuse as you see fit. Very Happy
