    How exactly does this setting work? I don't see any fields other than the box that I select that reads Enable honeypot spambot trap

    Thanks

    It makes a hidden field with tokens that are time sensitive, submitting too fast or waiting too long will deny the message.
    It is limited in scope, as it does not do any IP blocking, there are other plugins for that.

    Do not enable it if you are using caching plugins. And I do not recommend enabling it at all unless you have an active spam problem that you think is automated.
