An interesting reply, thanks for that. On one of my sites - joomla powered, I have a guestbook. It is moderated and protected by captcha. Over the last couple of weeks or so I have received a lot of spam on it which, of course, I have deleted before it could appear on site.
The puzzle has been, it appears to be written by a human, because of the captcha, but has all the characteristics of bot spam - varying IPs random message body based on variations of names of different meds, random usernames etc.
I assumed that it was a bot with some clever way of bypassing captcha. I'm getting about 20 or so a day, they take just minutes to delete, but I would love to find some way of trapping them for project honeypot.
