ban spammers? need help

If you wan´t to "ban" spammers from a guestbook and the spam messages is coming from completely diff IP:s but it´s the same typ of spam. Can you in some way ban in another way so they can´t spam my guestbook?
I think it´s coming from a programme that are scanning like "guestbooks" so it´s hard to ban. Can just remove it and then after next night, new messages has arrived.

You could add a check like "type 42 in this box before submitting your post" then an automated thing wouldn't know to do that.

Can you instead add a box that you must check before you can post? To make it even more easy.

No it´s on my (or our) personal guestbook. Nothin to do with SAS, if you thought that.

Most people seem to use a "Enter this funky number I hope you can read it to prove your not a bot" type stuff. PCBSD even uses it for the forum to stop the XXX bots from spamming the support forum.

The "enter this word/number" things get on my nerves a bit. Sometimes they're so distorted I can hardly read them and get it wrong a few times.

This is especially annoying if you want to download something from a web host and after 3 times you entered the code wrong the web host sticks a two hours waiting period up your a** -.-
