  • Unfortunately, just like many CAPCHTAs, wouldn't this keep those with visual disabilities from commenting? How are users not using CSS's screen profile (or not using CSS at all) going to know that this particular form field should not be filled in?

    Still, an interesting idea. I think ultimately the solution may be for everyone to roll their own solution with modified software, such that there is no one technique that spammers can break.
    • Instead of making the form field invisible, create a div that's invisible via CSS, with text and the form field. The text then noting that the field is for spam prevention and is not to be filled in. That way anyone using a screen reader or not CSS enabled, can understand why the field is there.
