Yup. It's just a form input field and a script/bot can be made to just tick the box. Similar to the "I agree to the terms..." that is just a checkbox. All of that can be automated.
Thanks a lot for your help!
I will look into adding a reCaptcha in this case.
With regard to the sub-directory, I will have to fix some issues, because when I was trying to use a sub directory, linking on a button to a site within the sub-directory would not work (due to the removed extension and/or missing trailing slash in the URL) .... I will have to do some experimentation to see how to fix this issue. As of now I'm clueless .....
Another thing I read about on some of my google-searches was that having both versions of a site working (WITH and WITHOUT a trailing slash) might cause some disadvantages with regard to SEO. Is there an easy fix to solve this?
