Maybe you need GFX confirmation code? This comand is adding into the same form that a guestbook's posting and untill you'll enter right code in textarea that will be drawn on on picture - you'll not be able to post comment.

I have a confirmation code. This is why I don't understand it. How robots can read my code? You can even check out the site I'm talking about http://lookingdoor.net/en/guestbook

If you're using MySQL database it can be chance that spammers are using XSS code that entering spam directly into database guestbook table. Check your site for XSS attacks Idea

Try a flat databased guestbook. That will be sure to mess them up.

flat database? what is that?
chrismen
flat files are little text files that you store info in instead of databases

Why is that better than MySQL? Why would it solve auto spam?
Alie
This woun't solve your problem! Instead of XSS addind commets into database you'll collect them in plain file.
