    Are you referring to your JotForm titled "PeeWee Contact Form"? As I check your JotForm, the captcha field seems to be displaying properly. 

    If you are referring to something different, please let us know. We will be happy to assist you.

    That is the one I was referring to, but I decided to delete Captcha because
    I found a post that said you have other ways of stopping spammers and only
    offered Captcha because people requested it.
    Is this the case? Or is Captcha really necessary to stop spammers from
    hijacking a form?

    A CAPTCHA (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human.

    You can also prevent duplicate submissions. You can take advantage of our unique submission feature to block multiple submissions from one system of one IP address by setting the "Loose check" or "Strict Check" respectively. Here is a guide to help you set unique submission in your form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/64-How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form 

    You can also use our unique question feature to prevent from submitting duplicate submissions. Example: You can set one of your forms question (like cell number or email address) to be a unique question. This will not allow a user to use the same cell number or email address to submit your form.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
