I'm using Drupal on other sites. I have no more spam using:

Honeypot: adds a hidden field, if it's filled, it's a bot.

SpamBlack Hole: replaces form actions with a dummy URL which is then replaced during form submission using javascript.

Hashcash: javascript proof-of-work algorithm

These techniques are only valid for annonymous users, but developers should take them into account since Askbot should have this feature in the future, since there is a need for allowing anonymous questions and answers, specially, when building a new community.
