I cannot believe that in 2013 captchas remain the most effective way to achieve whatever they are used for. I bet Google could bake something into Chrome to avoid captchas.

We should feel lucky that at least captchas can help. In the future, probably, there will be no chance you could separate humans from computers.

Very true. So we need to find a way to prevent spam that doesn't involve differentiating between a human and a bot.

I find your statement weirdly amusing. You are deploring a lack of progress regarding something (it is increasingly difficult to tell humans and computers apart) that you would probably view as progress if stated differently (computers are getting increasingly smarter). I feel your pain but this is a very though problem and won't get any easier soon.
