I have the S5 Quick Contact Form on my website, and lately I have been receiving a lot of spam from it.  I have the captcha enabled, and have updated to the latest version of the extension, but I am still receiving a lot of spam. What else can I do stop the influx of spam?

Unfortunately, if the captcha isn't helping, the spam you are getting is probably being generated by human spam-farms and is mostly unavoidable.  There are other extensions that are designed to be better at spam prevention; you may be better off switching to one of those.
