Python Django Forms Forms Clean a Field

help please

Challenge Task 2 of 2 Great job! Now we need to add a clean_honeypot method to our class. It should only take self as an argument. You can get the value in honeypot from self.cleaned_data (which acts like a dict). You should raise forms.ValidationError if honeypot has a length. Otherwise, just return honeypot. Your error message can be anything you want.

from django import forms

class LeadShareForm(forms.Form):
    email = forms.EmailField()
    link = forms.URLField()
    honeypot = forms.CharField(required=False,widget=forms.HiddenInput)
      def clean_honeypot(self):
        honey = self.cleaned_data['honeypot']
        if len(honey):
            raise forms.ValidationError('Bad robot!')
        return honey

The code is good except that the indentation is not consistent. Fix the indentation and you'll pass.

Specifically, "def" should begin in the same column as the line above it.
