> I don't understand the problem with displaying a password on Site.EditForm. Doesn't that stop robots? If robots can extract the password automatically, it's easy to e*n*c*o*d*e it in plain sight. That seems friendlier than captcha, which can be hard to read. Randy 

After I installed "plain sight" passwords (revealed in a GroupHeader) 
all of my spam stopped.
