Fighting spam

The Six Apart team put together a guide to fighting comment spam; Joe at Winds of Change has even more ideas on the topic. Personally the shutting old comments after 30 days approach has worked wonders, but at a cost of missing legitimate comments. Joe has the ultimate solution:

Personally, I'm surprised all that in-your-face porn, drugs, etc. hasn't yet been declared "un-Islamic" and a fatwa issued for the deaths of those involved. It would be the best publicity Osama et. al. could ever hope for, and a problem caused by a small circle of bad actors would be very susceptible to this solution.
We can only hope...
