      Not that I have an ingenious alternative, unfortunately.
      Oh, well you don't have to use mathematical questions. Just like in Steve's link, you can ask for spelling or simple YES, NO answers.

          Yeah exactly. Do you think they can figure out ones like "whats this website called?"?

            Bots can't. Humans can. This is all about stopping bots. Not humans. It isn't possible to stop humans to create spam accounts.
