The website real estate around forms is both highly valuable and rarely used effectively.
But when I see the tech media oohing about a 3rd Party captcha service that uses ads, I feel I can add something to the discussion.

When Disqus first launched, I was a little critical because I like to maintain control of comments, give commenters the benefit of Dofollow links, and ultimately retain control of their user generated content.
After my last post regarding Wide Circles I exchanged emails with one of their support representatives, with their message being…
We definitely do not tolerate any kind of SPAM at all
Dave Naylor seems to think it is a good idea to nofollow blog comments.
In many ways he is right:-
Maybe I am a little sensitive to blog comment spam issues, but I like genuine members of my community gaining a little link juice for their comments. Many comments you find on my blog are better than full blog posts elsewhere (sometimes the comments are better than what I write)
As I have just sent a similar list to someone whose comments were held automatically for moderation (like all new commenters), and whose comments will not be appearing (I have yet to decide whether I will flag them as spam or just delete them), I thought I would post them here for reference.
