Spam still sucks

This just amazes me.  I just deleted over 1,000 spam posts from the various comments.  Are these being manually entered?  Are these people that stupid?

Na... wanna bet they are cheap offshore labor?

Your CAPTCHA images are too easy to figure out -- the spammers cracked this a long while ago. I'd recommend going with english words that are *really* distorted. Even when people can't figure out 2 or 3 letters, it's pretty easy to guess the word.

Take out all the green, pass the result in to an ocr. Looks easy enough to me. Why don't you try at least changing some things up, like font, maybe color, maybe add some different types of noise.
