Captcha does accomplish the 'bot blocking.

I also think I found a bug in Firefox that prevents Captcha from working right,
and will report this on Captcha's forum.

The interesting tidbit in all this is that I had to back-port Captcha to Drupal
4.4 to make it work with my site. Guess it's time I updated Drupal on that
