I'm not sure how he's bypassing the captcha module and I don't have time now to dig. I disabled the captcha and I'll have to approve the comments manully as I used to.

salams -
i read a good article on how you can use ai to defeat most captchas.

as for me, on my weblog, i've had a lot of problems with span, until i've started using,
spam karma 2 - which is for wordpress, and it works really well.

you can go here for an explanation of how it works. pretty interesting read. it basically looks at a whole bunch of factors (including things like, "how long did it take to fill this comment in?" -- things in the http headers, etc). i average at least 10-12 caught spams per day and so far have not seen anything slip by it...
