I have had the same experience as well. I have also installed the latest
Captcha plugin (3.5.2) and still get the occasional  spammer getting

The Captcha plugin uses a jQuery plugin called QapTcha

Captcha Plugin 
- Very easy to use by user
- Supports touch interfaces
- Not sure how long it has been around

reCAPTCHA Plugin
- Run by Google who constantly tweak it to make it harder on the spam bots
- These tweaks do not require any changes on our part
- Everyone uses it so the spambots are familiar with how to attack it 
- CAPTCHA's be hard to read

So, which CAPTCHA plugin are we going to install on geeklog.net? Because
we're still getting those spam user signups.

FWIW, I've installed the reCAPTCHA plugin on my 2 blogs and I still get the
occasional spam user (still the same sort, it seems) but it's not the
onslaught that it was before.
