I'd suggest implementing a CAPTCHA instead. In English, a verification code image which displays a few distorted letters and numbers on a messy background, which (hopefully) only humans can interprete, not automatic OCR engines.
Since CFMX 8 (codename Scorpio) will introduce built-in support for CAPTCHA images, and my own secret world-dominating CFMX-based content management system is anything from ready, I haven't had to worry about the issue yet, but do a web search for "Coldfusion captcha", and you'll almost certainly find a solution, I'm sure.
If it's only the module that's attacked, and not an actual web page, then you need to tighten the security of the module which is handling the posted form.
Hope this helps, and fits your framework.
thanks for the info. I've opened the link, and i will study the CAPTCHA
