someone is putting blanks in our feedback form and submitting it

(OP)
I just created feedback form with a link on our home page.
At first I had no validation and I got a few blank responses. I set validation on the Name and email. So if they don't put anything in it prompts them to go back.
Last night I two requests with blank spaces.

How can I make it so they have to put in something beside blanks in Name or Email?
Not sure what they or it is after here if someone can shed light on that too. Can a bot or script or something be doing this to test something? Vulnerability or?

TIA

RE: someone is putting blanks in our feedback form and submitting it

It is possibly a search engine robot which is submitting the form. Don't know if it is possible to prevent that using Frontpage. Might be worth learning a little bit of server side scripting Perl/PHP to stop it happening. Server siding is also good for refusing rubbish.
