Sorry to bring up an old issue and sound like a whiner, but these CAPTCHA questions are pretty annoying. Are we any nearer to a solution? :?

Please tell me if it's none of my business :|

No nearer a solution I'm afraid. Nobody has time to delve into the issue.

The spammers are pretty persistent. I think it's just how it is.

Mildly annoying, but far less annoying than spammers.

Thanks to the team for implementing a working solution. Very much appreciated.

...although I'm not sure the number of inches in a foot is a fair, culturally neutral question for the human check.

Feel free to PM me some questions! It is bloody difficult to think of them. :)

Do the questions come in other languages for those whose English isn’t that good?

I do consider myself a human being and I absolutely have no idea how many inches a foot has. 8? 12?

Maybe, you could ask for how many centimetres a metre has instead? Or how many minutes an hour has?
