Hopefully a single message to the trap will not trigger a listing.

Certain types of spamtraps are designed to be harvestable. Thus, they
are "hidden" in web sites in places where people don't (usually) go, but
robots do. *I* know how to find them, so I assume the spammers know, as
I do not work for Spamcop, I did not write pflogsumm,
and I never wrote for PC Magazine.
