If you are like me, you hate spam in your blog but you also hate CAPTCHAs and refuse to subject your readers to them and instead fight the spammers head-on yourself.
Minteye.com might have the solution – a new “no typing” CAPTCHA that is visual and only requires the human to align the image by sliding a slider on the image.
This new kind of CAPTCHA certainly looks easier for a potential commenter to decipher than current CAPTACHAs but I wonder how long until the spammer community figures out a way to defeat them.
I still choose to fight the spammers head-on, via real-time block lists, Mod_Security rules, Akismet, and the good, old-fashioned “spam” button. If you’ve tried the new MintEye CAPTCHAs please post your results.
