I don't think there is much you can do about that. You could take control of your own form delivery and error messages by using the free FormstoGo Lite if your host supports php/perl/asp but that would rule out Serif hosting which relies on using SWR.

There is also formmail for perl (I think almost every host has perl, especially the linux-based ones.) It comes with its own CAPTCHA routine and is pretty secure despite getting a bit long in the tooth now. See it on one of my sites here. Note, though, that this is a direct link. The form normally comes up in a lightbox.

Available free, with full installation instructions from here

Dave, I've used formail on one of my other sites (which I hand built) and it does a very good job with limited interaction required. And don't break it because no one will fix it.

Not sure that I understand what you are saying here.

If it breaks, delete the perl script from from your cgi-bin folder and reinstall it. Fixed. There isn't really much to go wrong, it uses graphics rather than making images on the fly and they are stored on the site. A tiny bit of code to bring in the CAPTCHA image on your form is the only other thing you need.
