Additional spam check

A new spam check has been added to the form which checks for 7 or more consonants in a row and, when found, increases the spam score by 1. This is not enough to fail an entry by itself but helps to prevent the “random letter” spam that is often quite difficult to pinpoint and block on its own. Inspired by My Favorite Programming Mistakes by Paul Tero.

This is an optional update.
