    http://recaptcha.net/ is indeed a great service for preventing spam. We use it as part of the registration process here on Business Advice Forum and it is working very well, together with other tweaks, to keep the spammers out.

    http://akismet.com/ is another good service for blocking spammers from your blog.

    I totally agree to this but sad that some of the FREE web host do not allow akismet plug-in to be activated for it communicates with some contact server and that takes up much resource usage on the web host server's side. For example, byethost do not allow akismet plug-in to be activated. I mean you can very well activate this plug-in but you can never get this work as the plug in will not be able to contact it's server.
