Spam-free contact form

This form will prevent the most common forms of automated "contact form spam" by adding a hidden field to the form. If any text is entered into the hidden field, the message is assumed to be spam and thrown out.

It also uses JavaScript to generate your email address as a clickable link after the page has loaded. This prevents scrapers that do not execute javascript from reading your email address.

It includes both a simple version and an advanced (pretty) version, you should only need to put one or the other on your website.
