This last week I talked about using honeypot to keep the bots from creating accounts and emailing the default site contact form.
Some users on the site were encountering the following error message.
"There was a problem with your form submission. Please wait 8113 seconds and try again."
I found reference on drupal.org that you could experience this message if all forms were protected. I turned off the protection of all forms and only flagged the create account and the site wide contact form. Currently all the other forms (ie pages, events etc.) can only be updated if you are using an authorized user account.
This might be something you need to do if using honeypot.
