If I misread Larry's statement, and he is in fact not a supporter of C-R
systems, then of course my comments were misdirected and I apologize. I do
strongly feel that his characterization of content-filtering systems and
their efficacy was not as well-researched as he claimed. Modern content
filtering systems *do* have success rates as high as those claimed by their
proponents, and anyone who has actually given them a fair trial can confirm

Nah. For me at least, spam has me mildly annoyed, Swen et. al. has me cranky,
C-R systems have me really ticked off. I just got two more complaints from
end users about C-R challenges they received.
