Bug#122929: RFP: wpoison -- small CGI script to combat junk email

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

When an email harvester robot enters your webserver to get email
addresess for spaming, executing your wpoison script would
caught it into an endeless loop while providing it with thousands
of fake email addresses to poison its database.

Download from:

Test page:

License is BSDish with an additional clause (see the .pl file)

# 4. Either a copy of, or a link to the official Wpoison logo graphic
#     may be found at http://www.monkeys.com/wpoison/logo.gif) must be
#     included in, and clearly and legibly visible on the home page of any
#     web site which uses, employs, includes, or makes reference to this
#     software or any derivative or modified version thereof.  Also, the
#     official Wpoison logo itself must be include in an HTML hyperlink
#     so that any usser clicking on any part of the logo image will be
#     directed/linked to the Wpoison home page at:
#       http://www.monkeys.com/wpoison/

Although it appears to be DFSG compliant, the 4th clause requires some
debconf template to notify the user that he/she has to provide the link to
a GIF image.

I'll try to convince them to allow mirroring and redistributing the image
so that
it can be included in the package (it doesn't break DFSG #1 because the
obligation is to link the remote image).

Also using PNG would be preferred because GIF is a patented format
(see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/gif.html). I'll try to mention that too.
