A bot posted to it and then recorded the URL to it in some database. This is a shared database of URLs. Occasionally some other bot will look it up in the database, notice it still exists, and post into it.
Ok, so it's a pretty crappy trap. :P

And yet every once in a while it bears fruit. Goodbye silly bot, thank you for making it easy to remove you.

Has anyone encountered the simple captcha recently? Seems a lot more spam lately and I haven't had it show up at all, so it could be broken.
I just deleted a spammer that had somehow responded to a message I had already deleted as spam. How the what?

I got the "Are you human" question after my last login.

EDIT: And another one while submitting this post. So it seems to work.
