+1 - there is one well-known blog site that uses capture, and I've
tried as many as 10 times on a single submission, only to give up
because I simply couldn't get the captcha right. Now I don't even try
to comment there.
Is there an actual problem you're trying to solve
here? Is there
any indication that spam bots are affecting your site's
performance? If not, worrying about this is probably a waste of
We did have something of a problem on the userbase.kde.org
mostly spam inserted on new user pages, but finally one destructive
spam edit. We installed questy captcha for registration. It stops
machine/bot registrations but not human ones. It doesn't stop humans
adding spam, but believe me, the problem is so light compared with
what it was.
