Hello,

Sorry for the previuos empty reply.

SpamTrapped sessions are not immediately flagged as if from a blacklisted IP address intentionally, so this secret feature of the spamtrap address is note revealed immediately to the spammer. Should they?

Any new session (within the preset interval) from the same IP address will be flagged as blacklisted.
