I wholeheartedly agree. I used to have the captcha as well as moderation, a long time ago, but then someone pointed out to me that it was redundant. I do have my own reasons for moderating, but I might revisit that. I do hate word verification, because like you, I get it wrong a lot.

I won’t stop using moderation. It’s necessary. Without moderating your blog/ forum/ etc. you would have not just comment spam but people who think they can use your blog as their personal soapbox. All things, but in moderation.
I just prefer to be the one doing the work to moderate my blog (including using Akismet and any other aid) versus making others do it.
