      Why? Of what use would this annoying SW be?
      What protection against BOTS do you need that is not already existing? We've run a PGV site for over 5 years and with the current configurations, we've never had spurious emails to our PGV addresses, nor other bad bot activity that isn't already reigned in with the existing software design.

      If you truly believe you need this functionality, submit an RFE, but be sure to thorough document how and why such a nuisance (IMHO) would be an asset. Maybe someone will take up your plea.

      Check this patch for 3.3.8:
      https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1633858&group_id=55456&atid=477081

      If you really insist on doing this, you'll have to adapt it to 4.2.2.  Don't expect any of us developers to take this on -- we have too much else to do to work on something that generally disagree with.

    If you must use a CAPTCHA, make sure it's not on the "weak list" at http://ocr-research.org.ua/
