@EduardoMolteni I am afraid that delving into those techniques is not the purpose of the question nor is there enough room in the comments section to go into enough detail. BS = big surprise right? ;-)

@JMC I did not know that Google now owns reCaptcha. Last time I looked it was a Carnegie Mellon project.

@ChrisF I have used varying techniques to limit spam coming through my systems. Granted these are more work than implementing captcha but they give the user a better experience which I value more highly. One such simple way would be to implement Defensio or Akismet.
