I wish it were so! However, I have honeypots on every domain I control, with links scattered on each page of websites and my forum. They have been there for "years" but that didn't stop a resent barrage that ran for over 3 weeks and peaked at several hundred comment spam/day.
That attack didn't slowdown until I implemented http:BL blocking access to any IP with a threat score over 30. Sense I have raised the threshold to 40 and am getting about 10 comments/day blocking 40-80 a day.
I will be interested in the official response to your two post suggesting that you direct a visitor to a honey pot when you suspect they are a spammers. That doesn't agree with the way I read the TOSU:
