An interesting idea for blocking comment spam...
I have a couple of web pages with contact-me type forms, and they're constantly getting hit with spam. This is a very interesting idea, only I'd give the field a better name, like "URL":


I'm all for things that block spam without inconveniencing my users.

That's better than a fairly neat idea I heard. I might have to implement that!

I was thinking of making a field with a question: "Are you a spammer?". Any other response than 'no' will return a page that makes it look like the comment was posted, but really it wasn't. Apparently, someone else has found that technique to work very well. But the CSS hidden field I like much more.
