I definitely think just trying out captchas for a while and see what 
happens, is the way to go. If it's all bollocks, then y'all can think up 
your algorithms etc. for how to prevent spammers. Captchas can be 
implemented rather quickly these days, so it could be done before the 
weekend. A lot of your other ideas probably need more coding than this, 
as well as probably some fine-tuning.
