You say you won't upgrade and you want a captcha for your version but you didn't say what version you're running? Too bad: upgrade. I don't care if it's time or knowledge or the depth of your customization: upgrade or live in the past, and the past eats spam. Sorry friend, but it's hard to work with you when you say you won't do something that is probably the answer you need.
BTW it will ALWAYS be the answer. As any application grows the spammers will catch on and spew their foul crap on it. I'm feel confident in saying that all blog apps (and CMS apps and forum apps and merchant apps and whatever) will be thinking about spammers each time they release an upgrade. Dynamic content means spammers want a free ride. Owning the source files means stopping their crap. Using the application means eating it or upgrading.
Oh and captcha as a plugin has been available for a LONG time. So guess where we are again? (begins with "upgra" ... ;) )
