UPDATE: The fix has been implemented and tested over the past 7 days. This solution now affects all content forms on our many systems. Prior to data being collected the form first must handshake with the back end to ensure that we are publishing the original form.

"definition of form spam"
Spam in blogs (also called simply blog spam, comment spam, or social spam) is a form of spamdexing. (Note that blogspam also has another meaning, namely the post of a blogger who creates no-value-added posts to submit them to other sites.) It is done by posting (usually automatically) random comments or promoting commercial services to blogs, wikis, guestbooks, or other publicly accessible online discussion boards. Any web application that accepts and displays hyperlinks submitted by visitors may be a target.

The maintenance and continued effort to combat these online issues is part of the service that we provide to you. Spammers continue to find new and innovative ways to try to get their message out and we have to find ways to combat them. we thank you for your patients and we look forward to providing you with superior service.

We are working to track down and stop the form spammer.We have increased the security on the website forms but we need to balance user inconveinence with keeping this useless data out.

Nothing about this data is malicious and simply mark it as a bad lead and it will be pulled from the interface. We understand that the emails generated are a pain and we are working on developing a solution to shut this down.

This is a little more complicated fix because the program is not actually posting to the website but to the collection site with various IP addresses.

We will have a fix in place by the weekend. Sorry for any issues that this may cause.

Most customers would go to a kitchen design store for such a need. Combine the housing bubble bursting with new construction slowing and this created demand for direct to consumer custom countertop market. Fast forward to 2021 and demand skyrockets again due to so much money in the market and no where to go.
