I just almost went throu the registration, just to have a look at how the implemented capcha looked like...

To my opinion it looks as thou it might be fairly easy for an automated spambot to figure the letters out by using a fairly good ORC program.
Is it possible to make the capcha images less easy to read? With maybe a refresh button if one can't read the text?
I don't know at all how this system works so this is just ideas...
For examples of what I mean, take a look at the images here

What got me to actually take a look at this was some reasent spamposts that have come from spamers that post the same day they register...
I guess tose are automated, but there is ofcours the posibility that these are not automated, and then there is nothing to about the capcha athat would decreease the number of spammers...

Yes, I know what you mean, Haara. I have a slightly better captcha imagebuilder before my guestbook page. With the applied settings I have to reload the picture sometimes twice or even more often, but I don't see how a robot could manage to pass automatically.

It's simple... Robots are made of metal, and they're very strong.
