Spam emails received "from a visitor to my Deluxe website". I've had 300+ of these in the last 2 weeks.

Hoping Jim sees this posting; I've been bombarded by spammers "contacting me" through my BP website. Sick of it in my Inbox, every day, every hour.

  I too am receiving over 200 spam messages a day from my BP pro website.
This is becoming a huge waste of time sorting thru the spam and actual questions and orders from my clients.
This has been going on for over a month.
PLEASE HELP SOON.

  Unfortunately, I believe Jim is out of town for several weeks. Hopefully he will see this and do something about it as soon as he can.

  Thanks for the reminder, Nikki -- I recall something about him moving, maybe? That's unfortunate, if tech support is unavailable during that time to look into the issue :(

  The only thing I can think of is to disable your ability to be contacted via email through the Better Photo gallery. It doesn't help if you want to make sales, but at least it might be a temporary solution?

  I got tired enough of the relentless spam today that I did remove the "Contact Me" page, and a "Contact Me" link I'd put on my 'wildcard' page... (If someone reads the paragraph text there, they can still see I can be reached by email to chris @ chrisbudny . com -- but I suspect the spammers are using a web-crawling bot to "see" contact forms and paste in their garbage...
Thanks for the suggestion, Janet -- not sure I would have thought of that for awhile! Pity that is where we're at right now, until we here from BP...
