Dealing with Comment Spammers

My blogs have been subject to attacks from spammers over the past
five days. Their comments didn't make it to the publishing stage
because TypePad has been excellent at recognising spam. However, I have
comment notification by email and was getting all of the spammy
comments that way. There were so many of them hogging my email that I
couldn't find actual emails that people had sent which was really
annoying.

As a result of all this I've had to close comments
and trackbacks on all of my blog posts for both blogs. I'm only going
to enable comments for recent posts in the future. Sadly, this is
something that I'm going to just have to keep an eye on in the future.
