Was it here that I got the idea that if you put a hidden field in your form
then spammers will irresistably fill it? So if you get anything in that
field, junk the form?

I tried that today and have been spammed big time.

I used to have a simple question 'are you a robot' and up till now they've
been pretty honest. Just goes to show, robots get bad press.
