Spam, spam, spam, egg, chips, and spam

I recently enabled the contact form on this site, but I soon realised that I had missed out an important feature when I wrote the ShinyForms plugin. A large number of spambots were kind enough to bring this mistake to my attention, and that's why today's merged PR adds reCAPTCHA and Akismet protection to ShinyForm submissions.

Update, two days later: Apparently I rushed that feature a tiny bit, in my haste to defend my inbox. Here's a PR that fixes form recaptcha, and adds form mailer tests.
