Hi Adam,
Your example is really terrific.
But Pooh,  who came  up with the term Honeypot  for the "leave this field 
blank," concept?
Frankly I like those best of all, hey if you are human just ignore this 
I dare say the combination logic / honeypot creates a strong level of 
security.  Will provide your  example  to those asking as well.
