OK, I'll bite: I started using captchas after the Layabout Sailor encouraged me to do so as an antispam measure (although Typepad does a better job than most of keeping spam down). Captcha saved me from the tedium of a several-times-a-day flush of my email comment approvals, the only other spam control that I found to be foolproof.

Is there some spiffy new HTML string I can add to my template to banish spam without either of these two technologies?


I think they are terrible too - and very un-inclusive, even with the voice reading them.
