How difficult would it be to add an alternative to CAPTCHA like reCaptcha?

I guess it would be another control like the Captcha control.

OK, after doing the research that I should have done before posting...it looks easy.
I'll work on this and post back.

Matthew,

You can generally rely on Akismet...I have no spam on my blog. Akismet gets everything.

Turns out it was a breeze. I posted about it here:

I'll let it run for a few days and see how it performs.

Matthew,

Looks really good...I like the fact it was so easy to implement.
