a human-assisted automated bot-detector

Yet another idea for people to shoot down or improve...

1. Human players given option to report suspected bots.
2. After ten or so reports from different players, suspect is sent a captcha.
3. If the suspect passes, flag him as innocent until he or she logs out so he doesn't get victimized by a harrassment mob.
4. If the suspect fails, dump him in the jail where he can make it less pleasant for prisoners.

4b. Alternatively, mark the bot as a target for aggressing so that its loot and an honor point can do some good for a legitimate player.
