    All you blog spammers out there will be aware of Mollom captchas - those nice easy ones. However, I thought it was worthy of mention that sometimes, the whole system goes down. No matter what you put in the captcha field, this message is displayed:

    "The CAPTCHA was not completed correctly. Please complete this new CAPTCHA and try again."

    It's funny because webmasters are having to cut off their own right arm to try and stop spam.

    1) Mollom captchas are just about the easiest captchas in existence

    2) The Mollom system is down half the time, so not even real users can solve the captchas to add comments, update their blogs or even sign up!
