I was thinking of using a CAPTCHA for the Mojam/Musi-Cal submission forms
before I settled on the SpamBayes solution.  I asked about them on
python-list (I hadn't heard the CAPTCHA acronym at that point):


Steve D'Aprano's and Ben Finney's replies refer to limitations with
CAPTCHAs.  From my perspective the SpamBayes fix was simpler because I could
make changes to just one place in my code and not have to edit multiple
submission forms and their call entry points to add extra parameters.
