Everyone hates getting SPAM. We detect SPAM using a honey pot. Our form builder automatically adds a text
<input> with the name
_honey to the form. If you are writing your own form, you should copy our approach. Since the field is hidden by CSS, real people don't see it.
However, bots will go right ahead and fill it out, tipping us off that the submission was automated. We then delete the message before you even see it.
Since we are still a small company, this approach works well at detecting SPAM. As we grow, we'll implement statistical algorithms to filter out SPAM based on the content of form submissions.
