I'm not sure. I added a new honeypot text input to the new thread page. Basically automated spammers will usually fill out all of the input fields and so the honeypot method will place a hidden text input on the page and if this text input is filled out then the post will be discarded. I think that should help with automated spammers.

Yeah, it definitely weirded me out as well. Also should I be worried about all of this talk about honeypots?

It's not a pedophile honeypot, it's a honeypot for automated spam bots. There are multiple uses of the concept.
