Figure out some other way to determine if a visitor is human. Maybe a
random easy math question.

CAPTCHAs suck.

Personally, I like the ones which ask a simple question, like "what is
the sum of five and four?".  I have this set up with a number of
different phrasings (i.e. "how much is four added to five"), and include
all 4 arithmetic operations.  Simple, yet hard to parse if you have
enough variations (and probably not worth the trouble unless you have a
very heavy hitting site).  Simple enough in PHP.

I've also used things like "Which is found on a farm?" Multiple guess:
Argentina, volcano, swordfish, cow, skyscraper.

Again, lots of different wordings and wordings.  This one is best
handled in a database (and PHP).

Leave this field blank: __________________________

Possibly hide the label and field with CSS.

Or just make it type='hidden'

This is similar to something someone on this group used to suggest. (I
don't remember who it was.)

Include a hidden input tag with a name that sounds like something
important. Leave the value blank. Bots will fill in a value. People won't.
