The only things that seem to work today are distributed blacklists and content analysis. You won't keep spambots out now because they farm out captchas to real humans. Keep a basic captcha like Google's ReCaptcha for account signups just to keep out the lowest automated ones, but don't worry beyond that.
Thanks John. All duly noted.

sorry for the noobish slightly related comment.

antibots (google recaptchas anyone?) are getting far more annoying recently. just registering on this site made me go through 2 mark all squares that are sign/vehicles a few times, and select all cars at least 20 times on 1 square. having regularly use a portable vpn from time to time, ive never been hit with a recaptcha, which strikes me as odd.
