Based on the last 30 minutes I've spent looking at the cats on the Asirra I don't think the
spammers will need to provide any extra motivation to get people to solve them.
Cats @ Asirra

That's an interesting idea... maybe someone should combine captcha with hotornot. "Click on
the 3 hottest people in these 8 pictures". See, recognizing cats vs. dogs shouldn't be too
hard... you could probably get pretty far with simple contrast / SIFT tricks. But good luck
building a an adequate corpus to allow a computer to determine hotness!
This might also inspire people to have really long passwords.

I've been utterly unable to get past the hotornot test :-( And I assure you, I am perfectly
human. ... Or at least I thought so. Time to re-take my Voight-Kampff test ;-)
