spambot assault

In the few minutes since I posted, and while I was out and about reading other blogs, I received six spam comments.  I can get a couple dozen a day.  Anybody on wordpress or any other host know of a good fix for this?  Some plug in or widget or something?  I think I saw something that will add that the ‘enter this code’ box.  But if somebody has some other suggestion, I’ll certainly look into it!

    I use AkismetM with Worst Offenders and am pretty happy with it. Worst Offenders helps you toss the obvious spam so you can sort through what’s left to salvage real comments as needed. You might not need Worst Offenders if you’re dealing with a relatively low volume of spam – I get 1000+ spam comments/day, so it’s a lifesaver!

    Hey Lisa! Merry Christmas to you to!
    I get spam all the time. I have this thing on my blog that I have to approve the commentors. However I my junk mailbox is always overflowing with commentors to the same post. They all have GREEK names too. Very strange. I wish I could help, but I am not so good at all this stuff. good luck with it.
