Honeypot module helps you stop spammers in a different way than the typical spam modules that put up barriers, like captchas. Spambots will typically hit a form like the user registration page, fill in all the fields, and submit the form. Honeypot adds a hidden field to the form that users won't see, but spambots will. If that form is filled in, you know you've found a bot and the submission is discarded. This tutorial will give you an overview of the Honeypot module, including the configuration and seeing how it works. This tutorial is based on a Lullabot.com Module Monday post.
