Controlling Spam

We've implemented something called a CAPTCHA in order to control spam on our website. A CAPTCHA (for Completely Automated Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a way to determine that a real live human is submitting a form on our website.

There are many CAPTCHA's available, but we've chosen to use reCAPTCHA, which is a project of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
