    Hi! Very good implementation of an all-time classic technique. Thank you for making that easier!
    My question is maybe very basic, but I’m a newbie 🙂
    How can we avoid Chrome’s (or other browsers’) autofill function filling the honeypot? What is a safe field name that Chrome would never think of filling out for us?
    And on the other hand, (I suppose) a very common field name would assure us the bot would fill it (like ZIP code), so we don’t want the field to be too random either…

    What’s a good compromise?

  2. I like this implementation for new form input. Any way to clean up existing Contacts that are likely spam entries?
