It's hidden - seriously. I'm trying out a honeypot to catch bad-bot-specific behavior in a way that won't impact normal user registration. (Not to say that other anti-spam measures won't be needed to weed out hu-bots.)

For instance, bad-bots don't usually render javascript (so I've been told and tend to believe) so if things are hidden that way, bad-bots may not be able to harvest the info (the downside on that one is it also blocks people who have javascript turned off).

So I'm waiting for spam-bots to see if what I've read is correct. If it works, even on the short term, then I might have usable mod.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

So some testing is in order. So if people will simply register to make sure nothing else is broken, I'll wait for spam-bots to show up.  Wink
