We are running a contest on our website and are regularly get hit with multiple entries (sometime in the 100's) from the same IP or IP range. How are they getting around CAPTCHA? And is there any other way we can prevent these from eating up our monthly quota without having to individually block each and every suspect IP when we see abusive behaviour?

I am not sure how they are getting past the captcha unless there is a human manually entering the code.

You can block ranges of IPs from the panel as well as implement 'Click Protection' which can be used to only allow the form to be submitted a certain number of times over a specific time frame from a given IP address.

Using CAPTCHA, IP Blocking, along with Click Protection should effectively eliminate the spam.
