I had a form on my site so people could fill it in and it would be
added to the guest book. I often got spammers *try* and get added.
I even had a message on there that they would be vetted before being
added. Still didn't stop them though.

I don't even wear my wedding ring because of my broken fingers.
I only have about 5 pages of "jewelry" on my site (out over 5000) and
no inbound (or on site) with "jewellery"
