Spam listings
I've been having a problem with spam listings lately. I'm using Links 2.0 over at my directory. I hadn't noticed the problem at first because I don't get many submissions any longer. When I finally did notice the problem with an abnormally high about of submissions, I took down the add.cgi page and replaced it with a temporary notice, figuring that my site had been added to a search engine submission service or something.

This did not help the problem. They must be submitting their sites some other way, because I've received an additional 300 submissions since I took down the addition page. What else can I try to prevent these submissions from coming into the system?
