Form Spam Blocker with Secure Hijack-Proof Web Forms!

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

A form spam blocker – what a great idea! My friend, Will Bontrager over at Bontrager Connection always comes up with the coolest scripts, forms, and other Internet offerings (he really knows his stuff!) Now he has created a service where you can get hijack-proof webforms for only $3.97 a month! Wow, that’s a tiny amount of money for a whole lot of security and peace of mind!

Why is form spam and form hijacking a problem and, for that matter, what is it?


Form spam and form hijacking is when someone finds your web form, and fills it out a bazillion times, hitting “submit” each time (hmm, sounds like Blue Frog). This can be a form which sends email, or which posts to a blog, or any other sort of form. It’s a big problem, both because of the noise it generates, and the bandwidth it eats up. Servers can grind to a near-halt when a form hijacker is attacking your web form.

That’s why Bontrager Connection’s In-Form is so cool. They guarantee that any web form you create with them won’t be hijacked. Here’s what they say:

“Guaranteed hijack-proof. Nobody can hijack your server through your In-Formâ„¢ form by any conceiveable action or subterfuge or deception or spoiled brat temper tantrums.

Your In-Formâ„¢ form is hijack-proof. Guaranteed.”

Nifty!

They also explain that it protects against form spam in three ways:

 

“1. Nobody can send spam from your server because all In-Formâ„¢ email is sent from our server.

2. Nobody can get your email address from the form because it’s nowhere in the form, visible or hidden. What’s not there can’t be harvested.

3. Automated form submission is blocked because every instance of every form printed on your web site is encoded with not one, but three keys to ensure form submission is done manually by a real person at your web site.”

Wow, that’s pretty good!
