Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

I must admit that I was rather excited by your analyses. Not only does it stop spam bots - but you have to be semi-literate to leave a comment! That would be so awesome! ;P

@Jacek That's a very interesting idea! Could go along with the idea that "remember-me" cookies only allow access to certain parts of the site - have to re-login to access the rest.

3? I'm thinking more like 40 hits in 30mins before I ban them.

@S.Lott, there isn't anything complex about this. The question is just a call for any input that can pose a problem to the idea. I will mark the answer with the most upvotes as "correct" even though I'm sure there are many "correct" answers to this question.

@S.Lott Some of the people that have answered below have answered the question. There doesn't need to be a final answer - just any problems that can be though of that would defeat this setup. I'll mark the answer as the one with the most votes after everyone had a chance for some input.

Yes, I was thinking about the word being a certain part of speech with matching PoS replacements since I have worked in automated text parsing and can see a compute beating this system if the choice of correct words was obvious. Then again, the less obvious - the harder for non-[language] speakers to answer.

Certainly a problem that needs to be addressed. However, for now, my sites employ IP rate limiting and failure logging. Unless the spammer has a large-unrelated network (same as a distributed DoS) I would catch him.

Good point, but it's the same answer as What about people who don't fully understand the text in the reCAPTCHA image?
