I guess you missed all the historic discussion of how cheap it is, in
"Western" terms, to employ what passes as skilled labour in much of the
third-world to solve "captcha-like" challenges???
FWIW, I've heard of (never seen) porn sites where they link to a
site's Captcha image and in order to get the porn, you have to solve
the Captcha. This way, someone unknowingly helps out the spammer and
there's no one to employ or pay. It's basically free labor.
