I Hope Not

Wired's Paul Adams asks, Is Captcha's Moment Passing?
Recently, though, the various most popular Captcha implementations have been cracked.

On the upside, someone can read those things. I have to do them two or three times at myspace sometimes because they make it almost impossible to read. Yahoo isn't much better.

Oh, but yeah it would suck if spammers figured out an automated way to do it.
