I've just created a beta CAPTCHA service that I'd like to have tested by those who enjoy breaking security software. Any takers? Documentation http://bothole.appspot.com/doc To directly play with it from a browser use http://bothole.appspot.com

I'd like to avoid the Predicted SPAM Tsunami any ideas to make this service better and easier to use would be welcome.

Spammers are using automated human-powered captcha breaking services. These services pay a certain amount per broken captcha.

The Internet sucks.

Seems like spam-bots can't guess what the answer is 😉
