How Blizz can easily prevent botting

To create/join a game - enter a CAPTCHA (http://www.captcha.net) before they are allowed to do so.

Problem solved? Maybe not.

Will the user have to be active to bot, if they choose to do so? Yes.

Unfortunately there's no real way to "stop" botting... They can only hope to keep it at a minimum, I think.

Captchas can be bypassed in a number of ways, and it will only serve as an annoyance to legit users. No to captchas.
Agree you can easily write the bot off as "itune" or just proxy it. Just like how botting in wow is write off as a addon lol.

Only thing captcha does is annoy real users.

There are plenty of captcha readers out there.... And This would only serve to tick everyone else off much more than the botters.

Worst case scenario for the botter, he just has to enter the captchas as his 50 bots cycle through games.

No. I don't think you realize how difficult CAPTCHA's are for some people and how easy they are becoming for pattern recognition software to identify.

Sorry, but captchas are not working for all the F2P and some P2P games out there.

I'm pretty sure that, in the games that use this method, botting is even more rampant.
