It's complicated to implement it as a quick hack but u can try another unobtrusive technique called 'honey pots':

in news_details.html after <TMPL_UNLESS my_login> add:

Code: Select all

<input type="text" name="name" value="" style="display:none">
<input type="text" name="email" value="" style="display:none">
<Textarea name="text" style="width:100%;display:none;" rows=3></Textarea>
Then in index.cgi after

Code: Select all

my $redirect = &CommentRedirect($f->{cmt_type},$f->{cmt_ext_id});

Code: Select all

   if($f->{name} || $f->{email} || $f->{text})
      sleep 10;
      $ses->message("F*cking bot!");
