Spam Comments

I've seen this talked about before, but I've just noticed that I've had a few spam comments advertising penis enlargements and the like. I just deleted them of course, but there must be some automation involved here to find MT blog's where these comments can be easily posted? As who would spend time looking manually?!

I've switched on email when new comments are posted, but maybe a new feature of MT could be moderation of comments before they are posted? Unless someone has hacked this in already?

On thing I did notice was that one was posted as person "vig-rx". Looking back on Jeremy Jawodny's blog to this post about MT spam comments, good old vig-rx is listed... and what do you know, he's posted some spam! Maybe there should be some name banning as well, just to annoy the spammers.
