setup a honeynet a few years back, at a college, for a research/paper
about security - i.e. we subscribed and pre-fab-ed ('cause we did not
know if some mailing list were clever enough to reject real
responders) "out of office" messages, for email addresses belonging to
domains registered by us, with only honeypots at the other end ... and
then we carried out analysis/statistics for time between postings and
honeypot being hit, and by whom ;)

may not be what they appear :)
