Link Spam

It looks like I am getting a lot of link spam on my blog posts. Anyone know how to limit the spam without limiting legitimate links?

If you moved to a stand alone Wordpress blog you'd be able to stop a lot of it. Aksimet + Bad Behavior = very little blog spam.

Second what Andrew said, but my spam blockers were catching hundreds a day for the past several months, then all of a sudden, NOTHING. Maybe somebody finally found a physical address and sent them a letter bomb in return...

Mandating Blogger's word verification stopped all link spam for me. I wonder why it isn't working for you?

Some spammers have started paying people in third world countries to defeat turing tests like word verification.

Get the IP address of the poster, and then use blockacountry.com to block all of that country's IP ranges.

Most of this crap comes from third-world crapholes, where people in internet cafes are willing to manualy post spam for a fraction of a cent per post.
