Purpose:  Prevents bots from submitting Forms (fewer junk submissions).

 

Benefit:  It will be seamless to the User Experience (submitters will not have to fill out any extra fields).

 

Caveat:  This only prevents bots that fill out every field in a Form.

Method:

1)  Include a text field in your Form (hide it using css instead of through the native form property - use "display:none").

2)  Name the field something normally seen in forms that is not required for your current form (example:  "Address 3").

3)  Form Bots fill out every field they see in the code (if "Address 3" is submitted with a value then you know it's a bot).
