I am desperatly looking for a way to avoid spam in my guestbook...
(Advanced Guestbook: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=64412
In the forum this isnt an issue because no guests are allowed. In the guestbook however I get several spam posts a day! I'm deleting several spam posts every hour now... For a while I could block spam by changing the name of the guestbooks entry.php into another name. But now the spambots must have found a way around this...
I found 2 interesting mods - they seem to be able to avoid spam, but I m pretty sure they will not work on the guestbook without modifying:

What should I do? Please help! many thx in advance
