>>when you finish the game you get a big advert for playthru come up.
yes but i assume that wouldn't happen when you deploy them.
personally i like the simple question and answer idea that BeeDeeDubbleU uses, however of course if it became universal bots would develop a way of answering the question (simple vast database of Q&A's for a start)
i also think there is a lot of room for deciding if it is a bot rather than a human by other means, the only problem is it wouldn't be an off the shelf solution and different sites would have different requirements ... eg general bot spotting and blockign techniques - and for instance i have a situation where i don't allow bb code or html in a small site i have where people can post, i just dump attempted posts that use either and regular posters can post hassle free - this obviously wouldn't work in other situations.
