[resolved] Need CAPTCHA plugin (3 posts)

    Akismet is installed and doing a phenomenal job. Since Akismet doesn't charge sites that don't make a profit (like my site), I'd like to reduce the use of their resources as much as possible.

    What I'm looking for is a "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart" (CAPTCHA) plugin for WordPress 2.2. CAPTCHA generates those funny squiggly letters/numbers that machines cannot read, but humans can. A user has to type in the letters/numbers before their comment can be submitted.

    Plugin suggestions?

    Think that'll provide any value against Trackback spam (the majority)?

    To offload Akismet, you might also consider the Bad Behavior plugin -- it catches most before they even get to Akismet or Spam Karma 2.
