There's an old axiom in the security business that no defense can stop a sufficiently motivated attacker with sufficient resources. The US Secret Service knows this all too well, as they continue to try to protect the President (whomever that might be) against assassination attempts.
The "PlayThru" solution from areyouahuman.com is an interesting concept, but there are some other interesting alternatives as well. Among other things, I don't think that PlayThru would work for the visually-challenged, but then I've only read part of the FAQs so perhaps this is something they address later.
The problem there is to *AVOID* making the problem so hard that your "real" customers are also prevented from being able to post -- that would be throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
