    Generating a spammers honeypot in PHP.

    From the few honeypots of e-mail addresses that I've come across, I've mostly come across ones that look an awful lot like some typist has just mashed at thier keyboard and put @foo.com here and there. I figured that some bots could get wise to random strings so I thought that fake e-mail adresses could perhaps be more convincing.

    My idea was to use metasyntactic text, that copies an idea that many spammers use to avert filters.
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $string
    = <<&ltSTRING
    Two households
    both alike in dignity,
    In fair Veronawhere we lay our scene,
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
    Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
    A pair of star
    -cross'd lovers take their life;
    Whole misadventured piteous overthrows
    Doth with their death bury their parents' 
    strife.
    The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
    And the continuance of their parents' 
    rage,
    Whichbut their children's end, nought could remove,
    Is now the two hours' 
    traffic of our stage;
    The which if you with patient ears attend,
    What here shall missour toil shall strive to mend.
    STRING;

    $string str_replace("\n",' ',$string); 
    $string ereg_replace('[^a-zA-Z0-9_ ]','',$string);
    $string explode(' ',$string);
    $stop count($string);
    $i 0;

    while(
    $i &lt$stop){
    echo 
    '<li><a href="mailto:'.$string[$i].'@'.$string[$i+1].".com\">".$string[$i].'@'.$string[$i+1].".com</a></li>\n";
    $i$i 2;
    }
    ?&

    I don't currently have a website online apart from my freewebs account which naturally doesn't get much traffic. I've put an output from this script there but I reckon this would work great if people with larger websites could also use this (with different texts, for more honey, wikisource is always useful).
