Ray, there are efforts amoung blogs/CMS/etc to implement spam 
prevention.  Someone recently posted to us about a project MoveableType 
has.  Right now we don't have immediate plans for this though the 
subject has been discussed amongst us developers with no real decisive 
route planned.  If you could research a few of the options out there for 
us and report back that would be a great first step.  After you get 
ideas rounded up we can all comment on them and get started on a solution. 

Of course, I don't want to prevent progress either so if you just some 
hack out some sort of solution that's fine...just figured we'd do some 
due diligence before we commit too far toward one solution.

Still interested?  (I hope so!)
