You are absolutely right Dori, captcha are totaly against the
disabilities act for webdesigners. The option was also to give a mp3
solution for the words or letters given in the image.
I haven't got much time yet, but I think we could find a way to
implement simple questions protection.
I guess your math-captcha will drasticaly increase the arithmetic level
of teenager posting night long on forums... or it's the death of teenage
Why not geographic questions too ? :-o)

Any suggestions... Well, any suggestions short of
filling the server room
with C4, as I'm already contemplating that one, would be welcome...
Seeing all these complaints about wikibot spam and bogus accounts,
I'm considering using an image verification tool for the account
creation process on Wikicompany. Eg. using a short string of digits
in image form as acceptable proof of direct human interaction.
Has anyone already used an image verification tool with mediawiki?
If not, I'll try to setup something like like this, and hope it can be
made modular enough to be usable with a mediawiki configuration switch.
Then I'll ask for evil-bot detection and good-bot repair tools :)
I am not sure how many blind people participate on wikis, but why not
go with a simple [math] question that can be answered easily and
unambiguously by a person but not by simple bots. I'm not suggesting a
full blown Turing test, something as simple as "1 plus 1 is ?" Have a
series of these and throw one out randomly.
