  • You're getting spam bots with a Silverlight form? Color me surprised.

    Anyway, you would be better off doing a honeypot than a captcha, as captcha tends to kill conversion rates. The short version is to make a textbox, set the visibility to hidden, and create a rule to trash the form on submit if the textbox contains anything.
