Just in case this might be helpful, the open source blog/CMS software  
Wordpress has tons of really creative and intelligent plugin  
solutions for rejecting spam.


Since these are all open source and freely downloadable, perhaps one  
or more could serve as inspiration for an elegant spam rejection  

There might even be a way to tie in Akismet, which works beautifully  
on our site (dvcreators.net)

Best of luck!
