Rewrite “sendfriend” in URL?

My site, only launched 5 days ago, already has bots sending emails from the contact page using different IP addresses.

Until some kind soul adds a CAPTCHA solution, I thought I might at least hide the “sendfriend” from the search bots (I am assuming that this is one of the strings they look for).

I searched the Magento site, with no luck for my paticular question.

I found
app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model where there are URL related files and decided that I could probably do more harm than good if I touched them grin

Can someone please indicate how I would change this to (for example) linkinfo.

All help and advice appreciated.
