Here are a few links to some interesting articles on possible problems with 
C/R systems:

http://www.politechbot.com/p-04746.html


The biggest problem seem to be dealing with mailing lists. An interesting 
quote from one article on existing solutions and rules:

"A relatively easy to solve problem with challenge systems is that most of
them are written by dimwits who don't understand the way that e-mail
really works.  In 1983 the 4.3BSD Berkeley Unix "vacation"  program
correctly dealt with mail from lists and other mechanical sources, yet 20
years later I still see out-of-office replies from Lotus Notes and MS
Exchange to list mail every day."
