It's a 100% end to spambots, no other antispam measures necessary (I still have user validation on, but it didn't do a thing whatsoever to stop spambots and is totally unnecessary and useless as an anti-spambot measure.) So you deserve the plug!
I have written as private person pissed off by blacklisting. I hope my colleagues will not see that/what I've written it from KeyCAPTCHA account
Honestly speaking I was thinking (or was pissed off) by blogs using Akismet or other blacklisting features + multi-layer protections (captcha + moderation). Either of this made commenting unpleasant or simply impossible experience.
Just 2 days ago I came across this link on twitter:
http://cgonlinemarketing.com/online_adv ... -bloggers/
which is not available to me even for reading - http://cgonlinemarketing.com
blocks my IP.
The same story is with many forums in which I can not only register but I can not even read them - only through anonymizers or google cache.
Thanks again for positive feedback! Honestly, I did not expect it.
And, again, it is not promotion of KeyCAPTCHA but private irritation on IP-address or email blacklisting over internet
You are correct. According to my experise in this area,
any captcha requiring typing-in is passable by spambot
(might be not from 1st attempt).
The common opinion that Q&A (or honeypots, or Akismet-like systems) protects -
well, it protects from lack of interest
from professional spammers (with professional spam bots) only
