      I don't think POPFile would want to see what's inside any input value other than a textarea.

      Of course, I have seen hidden inputs used to break up words.

      This is very similar to a trick I call "A Form of Desperation" in The Spammers' Compendium (http://www.jgc.org/tsc/) but I like your example so I plan to add it.

      > "A Form of Desperation"

      Is there already a "trick:hidden words" that counts this? Either the number of occurances or maybe just a scaled  number of characters.

      If not, can there be? Words that aren't supposed to be seen by the reader shouldn't get counted or we just reward the jerk :-)
      Regards ... Alec

      Cool. These people are getting more and more desperate.
      "Dr. Ruth Ruprecht of Harvard Medical School had to slow down her AIDS"

      Not even a bunch of 15-pound monkeys can beat Popfile.
