Honeypot

I have seen some plugins that create a honey pot field for comments, but haven't found any for registration pages for a BuddyPress install.

I was wondering whether there are any around that deny a registration if the honey pot is filled in on registration. Would this even work for all these spam registrations?

    May work for the scripts but not for the manually created ones. And seems like those bots are getting smarter as time goes.

    I really hate the idea of making it harder for real users to get things done and stuff like this gets in the way. That's one of the reasons why I;m more of a backend person with our protection.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
