i saw this and very interesting that using captcha and images of your street not only does it prevent bots but also confirms locations on maps. I think it is thinking outside the box for sure on this one.

I think capatcha and all its variation of hard to read text is a dying technology to be honest. It annoys the sh,, out of users.

In the future I think we will see other more user friendly approaches to this "issue". At least on the bigger sites.

with all the botnet's and constant cloning of stupid people's computers like really honeypots can only get so far.

What could be the next generation of bot protection.

like would session monitoring be it, mix honey pots and fast reaction times.

hhmm that has got me thinking what would be next gen bot protection?

istead of scribble numbers it is letter box numbers and house numbers that are shown on the street at different shapes and angles and so method seams sturdy.
