That would be an effective way to identify spammers ... after they make spammy comments.

The objective of a typical spammer is promotion of a website.  Would these comments from applicants be visible only to established members of the site?  Would these comments not be permitted to include web links?

The comments would be intelligent and constructive, which implies that any links present would be relevant and useful.

Yes, that's the punchline.

We get phone calls now from AI computers that can respond to your responses.  There is a slight delay and if you say something absurd they don't have a good response.  But it won't be long before we are all talking to computers and who knows, maybe some of us now on BG are just that.

Let's be honest. Most humans don't have a good response to absurd language either.
