Although a HoneyPot has a malignant purpose to further a critical agenda, it may generally have a benign purpose. In a court room, a HoneyPot would be given the benefit of the doubt. That’s why HoneyPots are so effective: they work in such a way that prevents most, if not all, of those who are not in on the secret assume they are safe. If detected, a HoneyPot should be designed in such a way that the detector himself has to second guess the real purpose of the application.
