Nothing but spam

I know the Interwebs are gradually filling up with spam but this is getting ridiculous. On Sunday there were over 2000 attempts (from over 650 different IP addresses!) to abuse my blog comments with spam. This is beyond annoying and is actually causing my internet host problems as dealing with it takes up server resources. It isn't even as if the spam gets through; my cobbled together, hand-crafted spam filters appear to have stopped all but one message and that may have been from a real person rather than robots. So, whoever is behind this stop it, stop it right now. If you continue I may be forced to remove the comment feature from my site. That will stop all the spam but it will also stop any real person leaving a meaningful comment here. If that happens we all lose.
