adding a human interaction element to comments? [RESOLVED]

I think this is called a "CAPTURE". The same way, when you attempt to register on most forums these days, you are asked to "enter the characters in the image" - is there something similar I can use for those adding comments?

Thanks in advance.

I detest captcha, it only inconveniences humans ... search for edb's bobo box plugin ... it's a smidge nicer to humanity

That'd be the one ;)

It's still a "human jump through hoop" though ;)

I don't know what happened but as soon as I installed this the number of spam comments almost trippled!!! I'm going to re-configure the questions/answers but failing that might try recaptcha!

OK, well I've now got them both running - hopefully that will decrease the amount of nonsense spam I get! I'll leave it for a while and let you know how i get on...

Incidentally, the ReCaptcha plugin page is providing an invalid link to the download - either that or the designer has removed it. Anyone know what's going on there?

Cheers and Happy New Year
