I recently stumbled across an article in PC Magazine from 2007 and It mentioned www.projecthoneypot.org which allows servers to help track and eventually eliminate bots that SPAM and crawl the Internet to SPAM.

Recently they announced the individual's way to help with this by adding some links visible only to bots on their personal web pages. I thought this may be a way for BOINC to fight SPAM and for those who read this to find out how they can help fight SPAM.

I'm not sure if this would be possible to distribute this with the server software or making a link default on the BOINC sites, but it may if possible help fight SPAM. As BOINC servers grow the more possibilities of SPAM Bots can be tracked and trapped. It may be something to look into.
