Alternative captcha ideas for future

Now there are multiple captcha types against spam/abuse:

image captcha
ascii captcha
audio captcha
math captcha
easy questions

How will next generation captchas look like? I think in the future there will be much more captchas types like:

car captcha
film captcha
famous people
famous places
number to text
word suggestion with add remove extra letters(ie: gogle, new yoork)
animals (ie: which animals do you see in this picture from left to right)
traffic captcha

What do you think what more could be one of next spam-preventing technologies?

Delete all spam node entries of a spesific user on a Drupal site with PHP

Case: We have one or more spammer-user who added hunderts/thousands of nodes automagicly or manually. It takes very long time to delete them using Drupal admin interface. We need a fast & effective solution.

The solution
1. Find 'uid' of spammer
2. Create a block with input-filter PHP and run following code

<?php
$r = db_query("select * from {node} where uid='123456789'");
while( $arr = db_fetch_array($r) ){
	echo $counter++. " ". print_r($arr,1)." ";
            echo node_delete( $arr[nid] );
}
?>

Hide your email address + mailto link with javascript from spammer

Of course you can write you email on an gif or jpeg image. But you cant give a mailto:link without your email appears clearly. Therefore use javascript, your email appears to visitors as a text but appears spam-bots crawlers as javascript code, which they ignore as usual.


	var email = ['i','n','f','o','@', 's', 'i', 't', 'e', '.', 'c', 'o', 'm']; 
	var link = "";
	for(i=0; i'+link+'');
