This article is for HVmusic members who have listings or classifieds on the site.
I know we all hate it when someone sends a spam message to you from your classified ad or listing. Sometimes spammers will send dozens of these messages to many different classifieds. To send such email, spammers have to fill out the email response form that I use to hide your email address. I've tried several ways to stop or dissuade them from filling out the form, but it keeps happening. So I have now taken the additional step of adding a "Captcha" to the email response form.
Below is what a Captcha looks like.... I'm sure you've seen them before on other web sites.
So, I'm sorry to add this extra step for someone to respond to your classified, but I think it's worth it to reduce the likelihood of you receiving spam responses.
