spam is starting a "war" again AUR [1], so we can reply with a captcha.

I did a search, and the best captcha seems to be reCAPTCHA [2].
It's free code, but to use it we must register an user. I did it and
patched AUR to use reCAPTCHA.
Patch is attached (recaptcha php library also).

I think we need a captcha for registration but absolute not for
comments, we can suspend the account who do spam.
