Why don't you have a look at the new FormMaker Pro that VH have just made available to customers? You may be able to design something that can stop bots from using your forms. Also have a look in the 'Tips and Tricks' forum at the thread Andy started about this sort of problem. There are ways around this though it may mean a little tweaking.
