Spam-Links (Captcha Alternatives)
It's a lot of talk about spam here and so I've just looked around for captcha alternatives. Even with all the effort that is done here there are some spambots coming through and they are opening discussions.
I don't like captchas. They are hard to read and I'm convinced that every spammers favorite tool find them easier to pass than it is for me. But I have seen some more graphical captchas and I've found the below and they look all more promising to me than recaptcha:
- This one, looking very technical: http://www.securitystronghold.com/products/ironclad-captcha/?product_tab=example
- I don't like how it pops up but they already thought of mobile users which I found very comfortable http://confidenttechnologies.com/products/confident-captcha
- Something which shows a heart for lost animals http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/asirra/
- Press play to start! http://areyouahuman.com/about-playthru/ :-)
Yes, the last one is my favorite.
While thinking that all of them are better than recaptcha, I've found that list of services: http://extract-web-data.com/8-best-captcha-solving-services-and-tools/ 70 Cent for one thousand captchas!
I think, we've lost. You will not find an admin who wants to kill 1000 registrations for 70 Cent. That company should offer such a service in parallel...
Just wanted to show what I've looked at and found out on that topic.
