    Hello

    I’ve been receiving a lot of spam mails since I’ve converted to Genesis + Metro Pro theme. I’m using the Contact Form 7 plug-in with Really Easy Captcha. The website also has Akismet activated.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Cheers,
    Gilles

    Hi Rob

    I know it’s not Genesis (Genesis is awesome ;-)), I was just wondering what caused it.
    URL to the website can be found under my message.

    Cheers,

    I’m sure this is a question most of us are wondering about. I think the more popular your blog gets the more spam you receive.
    I also use Akismet and it seems to work I would do a search to see how most people deal with this.
