In order to validate, you have to know what counts as valid.

For spam, you'll likely want to either moderate the entries or approve them ahead of time.

And for security, you'll need to do a lot more than filter JavaScript.

There are plenty of ways. The way I recommend is to write them.

If you insist on being lazy, go ahead and search online. Just so you know (and I quote), "PHP is easy enough to learn that idiots can learn it, then teach it in totally inaccurate ways." Beware where you learn from.
