    A JavaScript trap is when I put some code on the page that updates a hidden field on the comments form. If the field is wrong it is because the user had JavaScript turned off or was running a robot. Only very paranoid users turn off JavaScript. So the user must be a badly written robot.
    The http_referer missing refers to a standard heading that all web browsers send out. If it is missing, or does not match the website, then the referrer code in the browser is not working or else the user is robot trying to send you spam.

    Thanks for clearing that up Keith
