Comment Spam Gone Wild

I guess it happens to everyone with a blog at some point or another, yes comment spamming has taken off on my blog. It started as one here or there, but now I am getting the full on attacks, like waking up to 8 online gambling sites leaving comments like:

“Really great stuff, lots of informative stuff!! Keep up the great website, it was good to stop by!” by - poker


“You may find it interesting to check out some relevant pages dedicated to… “ by: free xenical diet pills

So, please bear with me while I attempt to remedy this problem. I prefer to keep open comments but I may have to change that for a while until a find a more permanent solution to the issue. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions on how to lock down comment spam on WordPress, please let me know. Thanks!

    Agree with you. Trackbacks are much worse, but the spammers are getting very smart.
