I personally against CAPTCHA, I find it many time unreadable, while
OCR can simply "understand" it...
I personally using Turing questions, that is a question that can only
have one answer, for example, "what direction is the opposite of
left" or "does one plus two not equal three ?"

You can have a big question bank (It took me to create several
Hondurans questions in 3 hours.. but if many people helps you, you can
create even more).

Why not save every tag for a specific user that using it that is like
del.iciu.us  ?
When there are are many people that using the same tag, you can make
it bigger ...

I would recommend to edit the visible tags only ... or a specific
screen with list box and edit box to edit selected tags.

I think it's a good idea, then you will not have double tags for every subject.
