I personally don't like the visual CAPTCHA systems. I use the Q&A CAPTCHA plugin and my spam signups are pretty much nonexistent lately. I have a rotating group of questions; the trick is that I use (very simple) mathematical word problems. If you use a math problem written like a grade school drill, like "2+2*8", then bots can easily work through that. But if you use a simple mathematical word problem like "Cheryl buys two packs of Girl Guide cookies for $2 each and pays with a $5 bill; how much change should she get back", then bots seem to choke on it. The Q&A CAPTCHA can accept multiple questions too, so you can have four or five rotating questions (it randomly picks one each time).
As some have pointed out to me, it's possible that certain low-IQ humans might choke on a question like that too, but I quite frankly always thought a board would be better off without such stupid people being able to join anyway.
