Getting spammed (need a fix)

John/Rhys
Command has been getting spammed via the CONTACT US tab ever since you created this forum version. It used to be very frequent but pleased not so much now but the contact us is still being miss used.
Can you take a look at this module and see if you can make it have a security check (something like the random codes you would have to enter before posting or only with registered users) or for now disable it.

Just so you know that the spamming is just links for us to visit but that not what that contact Us lab is meant to be used for.

Thx guys (i took a quick look at it but it was taking me to long to navigate through it, as you guys set it up you might be able to find a solution a lot faster)

P.s. Ive noticed the CONTACT US module has an update, also so does the forums its self. Can you update to latest for both guys. It still has instructions for auto installing but id rather leave it with you and maybe you can sit down with me and take me through the process so i can do it in the future.

I HAVE DISABLED CONTACT US MODULE FOR NOW, WHILE YOU INVESTIGATE ;)
