This is one sweet component! This is a very nice add on for those that may be looking for that little extra protection from spammers! Like the review from evolvingtech, this component is almost perfect! If you’re working with the latest Joomla (1.0.12), you are going to have to work the patch in manually. My experience was less involved than evolvingtech due to the fact I was able to replace the Joomla files with the modified file that came in the patch for 1.0.12 via FTP. It was still more involved than I would recommend for someone new to Joomla and new to the replacing of core files via FTP. If the developer would take the time to tweek this component so that the patch was easer to install, it would be prefect!
