I would suggest creating a Akismet plugin as a replacement for the Captcha's

The advantages:

- users don't need to type a captcha
- so for users with less tech skills, it is much easier for them to fill out a contact form for instance
- spam is still kept out

see: www.akismet.com

implementing is quite easy, for instance see: https://github.com/achingbrain/php5-akismet

Hi Robert,

basically, it is a good idea.
But furthermore Askimet is also not safe as claimed and it costs money.
I would rather suggest there another way.

Ghost Captcha from Codecanyon -> it works geat! Here the link -> LINK (http://codecanyon.net/item/ghost-captcha/3438992?sso?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=pjtops).
In GhostCaptcha user need also not enter code only if certain conditions arrive.
It costs only a small money and its a great tool.

Best regards
