That is the only copy of Advanced Guestbook on your server?

Change the verification question/answer. Usually when they get past this test it's because the person has a second guestbook set up pointing to the same database.

i set the question on the day i installed the verificationmod, but the spam never stopped, even not on the first day. They seem to get past it nomatter what the answer is.
So i must have set up something wrong. Problem is i dont know where to look.

yep i know its supposed to work...but i get spammed like crazy. Do you have ANY idea what's up? Im absolutely sure i have only one database installed. And these are really not manual spammers.

i'm browsing the database, and they appear in the same database as the other entries (sorry if this sounds too obvious im no expert) in the table book_data. Used http client: httpclient (http://www.phpclasses.org/httpclient $Revision: 1.40 $)

No what I meant is that sometimes a person, for various reasons, has two copies of the advanced guestbok script on their server and has them both using the same database and tables.

you said you only have a single version of the guestbook script on your site so this is not the problem.
