What if you were to add other choices to slant the field a bit, like "I'm not just a Spammer; I'm also a mindless, evil automaton"? That would lessen the success rate to 1/3; another choice would bring it down to 1/4, etc. It may sound silly and fruitless, but it might also work, while keeping the "right" choice obvious. And adding a bit of humor might not be a bad thing.
