  Description     : an automated and intelligent spam cache poisoner

(taken from the first two paragraphs on the web page)

Sugarplum is an automated spam-poisoner. Its purpose is to feed realistic
and enticing, but totally useless or hazardous data to wandering address
harvesters such as EmailSiphon, Cherry Picker, etc.  The idea is to so
contaminate spammers' databases as to require that they be discarded,
or at least that all data retrieved from your site (including actual
email addresses) be removed.

Sugarplum employs a combination of Apache's mod_rewrite URL rewriting
rules and perl code. It combines several anti-spambot tactics, includling
fictitious (but RFC822-compliant) email address poisoning, injection
with the addresses of known spammers (let them all spam each other),
deterministic output, and "teergrube" spamtrap addressing.
