Website Updated Utilizing ReCAPTCHA To Avoid Spam Email

Our website over the past few months has been visited over 4000 times a day. Though such high numbers are great, the downside is that we have started seeing an increasing amount of spam email such that more spam is received than legitimate email.

In order to combat such spam, we have had no choice but to institute a system whereby our email address is hidden until 2 word images are correctly typed in. We have selected ReCAPTCHA to provide this service for two main reasons... it is free and by entering the words in the box, we help to digitize texts that were written before the computer age. Read more about this here.

Of course, we still have a secure email submission form which prevents spam as well as protects confidential private information.
