Honey Pot

A honey pot is a sweet trap for the spammers.  It is something that they are drawn to and they post spam with the hopes that it will get shared with the rest of the internet.  Sadly for them, honey pots are a trap and the data is collected and used to help protect sites from the havoc wreaked by spammers.  The ironic part of having a site that is dedicated to listing common spam keywords is that spammers continually spam this site.  We would like to thank the spammers for making our job easier.

The original version (with the excerpted items highlighted) appears in the 1914 Loeb Classical Library Edition of the De Finibus, Book 1, sections 32–3:
