If the honeypot captcha field is filled out then you know that it is a spam submission. The extension provides honeypot captcha for magento forms
What means HoneyPot Technology
The reason the Honeypot technique is so popular is b/c, in addition to how easy and effective it is, it doesn’t interfere with the user experience. It demands nothing extra of them. In fact, your users won’t even know you’re using it! The HoneyPot captcha includes hidden field into form. And if there is spam bot it will try to fill all fields include hidden one. And that’s what will give away whether the form submission is spam or not. Real users won’t be able to see the field, or submit any value for it. Spam bots, however, will still see the field in the form’s markup and submit it with the rest of the form.
