Captcha (and equivalents) are the usual solution.  Basically, it prompts the
user to type the letters in an image.  This should heavily cut down, if not
completely remove, all form spam.

Subject: [Dshield] Web Form Spam Problems

I am supporting a customer who currently has their web site hosted by
PureHost.  Recently they have begun to receive a small amount of spam
originating from a form on their web site.

Are there any methods to prevent this type of spam from occurring?  What is
the best method for dealing with this issue and problem?

Thanks in advance,
