Seriously! I think bot writers would figure out math questions pretty
quickly -- just pipe it to bc(1), for instance.
I think simple questions about current events would both be fair to
blind people, AND discriminate against those who don't keep up with
things -- two desirable features! :-)
Hey, this actually beats the plan I was putting together, infanticide in
order to raise the average netizen age once more to where it was 12-15
years ago :)
much better than the silly captcha... but now themath-dyslexic people
will hate you, and there are more of those than blind people, I think :)
How about "Are you a bot? yes/no", but it's a trick question, you see?
Anyone answering he's not a bot is obviously a bot trying to hide its
identity and you filter them out. case closed.
