    Severe spam via listings on CP site

    It would appear one of my sites is on the radar of a spamming group.

    Today I have had 90 or so spam messages via the 'contact the user' tab for different ad listings.

    Each have a different message & user name with email, of this lot there's about 30 different IP addresses several of which are already on public spam blacklists

    I've added the IPs to be blocked via server & also htaccess

    Apart from making people register before responding to an ad (would put people off enquiring) is there any other way to be rid of this prob?
