    GASP works wonderfully!

    Are you still developing it further?

    It would be fantastic if you could somehow make it so that GASP could be used on Contact forms... Like "Contact Form 7" and/or Gravity forms.

    As an alternative, would simply putting in a checkbox in those forms do the equivalent protection?

    Ken, Gravity Forms has a "spam honey pot" that you can turn on, which helps a great deal. It is kind of the opposite of GASP, as it is a hidden field that only the robots will fill in.

    The other option I've used with great success is an "are you human" question. Questions you could ask include: "are you human? answer 'yes' or 'no'" or "is fire hot or cold?" or "what is the sum of 1 + 2? (hint: enter '3')". See http://www.brego.net/about/contact.php for an example.

    The trick there is that you need to have your code check to make sure that the question was properly answered. You may also want to handle the "oops" factor by giving visitors another chance if they didn't fill it in properly at first.
