comment spam

Got several spam comments from “vig-rx” today on various blogs I maintain. A quick look around the blogosphere indicates that the person or ‘bot responsible has been busy-busy-busy today.

Mine all came from the same IP address, 61.181.5.155, which I’ve added to the banned list in my blog. If you’ve gotten some of the same comments spam, but from a different IP address, I’d appreciate knowing where yours came from so I can add it to my banned list.

Update, 1 September, 11:52am
I followed the trackback from Shelleys’ blog, and from there found her excellent information on blocking comment spam from a post she wrote last October (only a week after I’d started blogging, which is probably why I didn’t see it then). Thanks, Shelley. Much better solution than the IP banning approach.
