CAPTCHA for the first comment

    I suggest extending the option:

    "Comment author must have a previously approved comment"

    with a captcha.

    When a visitor comments for the first time, he will have to resolve a capthca. If he fails, his comment will be deleted (not moderated).

    Just by using this option (and no Akismet or other similar plugins) blog author will have very little or no spam at all waiting in moderation queue. Just think about it...

    Please vote if you like it. Thank you.

    Captcha will never be in core. It's not accessible, and we have enough issues with that.

    It could be a very good idea, but it's not accessible like ipstenu said. Too bad !

    Fortunately we already have good anti spam in WP.
