As I mentioned earlier, when I added the CAPTCHA validation to the comments section on here, I was notified that if you did not enter the words in correctly, once you were sent back to try again, your comment did not carry over, forcing you to re-enter it.
That's a pain in the ass for people, and I decided to just ditch the CAPTCHA, and instead put up my own bot checker, which consists of you determining whether you are a bot or not, and then selecting the appropriate radio button. If you deny being a bot, then your comment is displayed. If you admit to being a bot, or choose to abstain from my difficult questioning, then your comment will fall into the abyss, never to be seen again.
Sounds pretty simple, I guess we'll see if it's enough to fool the bots.
