Late last week I changed the settings on this site to require a login to post comments. In the days since 20,000 fewer comment spam postings have been submitted each day. Sadly the Drupal folks are going to have to do something drastic quickly to allow comment posting while preventing the time-wasters. There are still plenty of trackback spam posted each day, something for later this week.
