Does CAPTCHA help commenters feel safe?

A couple of people in our community have ditched CAPTCHA recently to give CFFormProtect a try (Dan Wilson and Jason Dean). I’m glad I could help out some fellow CFers. :)However, this got me thinking…what if you are commenting on a blog and you are afraid of getting spam from that blog sent to you? CFFormProtect allows the blog author to give you a plain comment form which appears to be devoid of protection. So I’m wondering…would this perceived lack of protection possibly scare commenters away from your blog? I don’t know, but if so maybe we should have some text in the comment form like “This form is protected by invisible spam prevention”, or something along those lines? What do you guys think?
