Comment Captchas

Google: We've just introduced the option to require word verification for comments. [cut] Features like comment captcha and flag as objectionable are not complete solutions to the problem of spam. But they are additional tools that can help address it.

Randy: MHO. None of this will help! The Google flag doesn't actually lead to blogs being removed from the blogosphere search engines or from Blogspot hosting. And since their doesn't not appear to be a comment spam problem on Google, a captcha for comments only prevents comments from the visually impaired and my daughter.
