Honeypot Comments

Plugin to stop most comment spam by adding in a simple honeypot for spam bots to get caught in.

No more need for captchas, making your readers jump through hoops in order to comment. Instead, activate this plugin and let a simple hidden honeypot input field catch spam bots, which will fill out all fields in the form (even our hidden honeypot field). If that honeypot field isn't empty, the comment won't process, effectively nuking most spam comments.

I also made sure that the id of the field is utilizing a random string of letters and numbers every time the page is loaded (ie: 34rscsDW37g8gf) so that spam bots can't target a specific id name in order to bypass it, making it harder for the bots to win.

Installation is dead simple, just activate the plugin and you're done. No other steps required on your end, the plugin handles everything.
