Hello,
With much help from here I have put a contact form on my site. I've had a couple of responses that are absolute rubbish and seem to consist mostly of gobblydegook urls. My fear is that these responses are generated by robots and that the moment I open the Email I confirm my Email address thus leaving it open to spam or worse.

My question then is this...is there any code I can download that will generate an image that the robots can't read but will prevent the form being submitted if the characters displayed in the image are not correctly repeated?

Many thanks
