    Answer it

    We have a registration form where user can register directly i.e we don't have any mail verification process beside that we also don't want to add captcha as its add an extra step for the user.
    The issue we are having is that some bot is making fake signup on our site. We have added few constraint like hidden field and matching time taken to submit the form.
    But all in vain can anyone suggest a best way to stop the bot other than captcha.

  • There are several simple CAPTCHA techniques now. Some can even be humorous. I've seen one that simply asks are you a robot with a checkbox response. Another, checkpagerank.net, uses a money-making scheme.

    You don't have to have a user figure out some obfuscated phrase anymore.
