Ehm, you do know security questions won't work take that from a person who has written game bots to spam bots for fun.

It depends on what the questions and answers are. Mathematical questions (What is 1+1?) are usually a bad idea, but niche specific questions (How many seasons of Dexter were made?) can help prevent spam quite well.

If you know a little PHP you could also modify the script to serve an image instead of the plain text question. I've found that works well for all bots.
Well there's still a problem there, you can always just get the questions manually and push them into a bot, thus it'll still get past it
