Did you put (invisible) links from your guestbook (and other pages) to your trap? If no, how could the comment spammers get the idea to visit your trap? Whatever, this would not really prevent comment spammers from doing their work. They would just be caught.

"Visitors" of your trap are presented with a kind of webform looking thingy, and the script recognizes if and what they enter. This information is centrally collected and used by Project Honeypot.

As a user of Project Honeypot, implement an HTTP blacklist (https://www.projecthoneypot.org/httpbl_implementations.php), or use a CAPTCHA service for your guestbook, or run your websites through a CDN service like Cloudflare.com or Incapsula.com. It's your choice...
