That really made me laugh, give him like a long sentence with no punctuation and ask him to correct the majority of it in order to join. We either wouldn't hear from him again or maybe this time he'd actually learn something and it wouldn't be so obvious when he joins lol!

that's what that test is.
In VB the letters on the back ground is called human verification. The term captcha is treated as something different. But I guess it would be safe to assume they both fall under the same generic term captcha.
