Peter,
While I can appreciate your stance on CAPTCHAs, this is ardly the time to 
put politics in front of a great cause. There are several solutions for 
solving CAPTCHAs available including Webvisum, Solona, etc.
Certainly, a perfect world would include an accessible solution for 
everything, but if we had a perfect world, there would be no need for Youth 
Slam either.
