The method described there - when images are reloaded the images are downrated
- may not be a good model. Bots which are attempting to break through may
reload images continuously in order to capture your entire pool of images. They
may also reload several times sequentially in hopes of retrieving an image they
'know' before making a random guess.

It would be preferable to discover if a user trying to pass a captcha and
failing, succeeds on a second attempt. If the user succeeds on a second
attempt, the previous incorrect choice should be downrated. This model is
preferred because the success on the second attempt proves the user is a human,
which means the failed first attempt was by a human indicating that previous
captcha was difficult for a human to solve.

Over time this should result in captchas known to be difficult for humans to
solve being downrated out of the pool.
