I like the idea.  It is hard, but here are some possible questions:

"What is the first name of the Finn who created the Linux operating system?"
"What is the abbreviation for the GNU C Compiler?"
"What is the name of the simple text editor that comes with Windows?"
"Complete the phrase: ____ screen of death"
"What is the name for a billion bytes?"

I have no idea if those will faze spammers.
