Automated spam-poisoner

Sugarplum is an automated spam-poisoner. It feeds large amounts of realistic but useless data to wandering spam-bots such as EmailSiphon, Cherry Picker, etc. This contaminates spammers' databases so much as to require culling out large portions (including any real data) and/or instructing spambots to avoid your site. Sugarplum detects so-called "stealth" spambots, and can activate firewalls or more aggressive countermeasures at the administrator's option. It includes Apache mod_rewrite rules for known spambots.
