Hi Phil,

But why not develop your own system that is tuned to the mechanics of your website?  Taking responsibility and removing the burden from users will improve their interactions with and impressions of your website. Manually moderating content is often a sacrifice worth making. . . . The perfect CAPTCHA is no CAPTCHA at all. " 

Amen, to that.
