In the most recent versions of 6.x, 9.x, 10.x and in 11.0 there is a new feature. Just visit tiki-admin.php?page=security -> Spam protection and activate "Require passcode to register" and "Show passcode on registration form".

eunos: AFAIK, it has solved the problem on all sites that have tried it so far. I don't know how long it will take for them to catch on, but for now, it works. It shows the passcode (which is unique to each site) to humans via JavaScript.

CAPTCHA seems to do nothing to slow them down and annoys humans.

+1 to integrating specialized solutions like Bad Behavior, StopForumSpam, ZB BLOCK or PHPIDS

@nikosal25: "question and answer field, like I had done in my mediawiki site" -> This is indeed very efficient because it's contextual to the site.

We just need someone to take the lead on this. Here is how to get commit access.
