    I've got my options set that folks need to register and log in before being able to leave a comment and yet every day I've got comments from spammers. How's that possible and how do I stop it?

    Those are trackback spam. Logins not necessary for those.

    <standard spam message>

    Install and activate Akismet -or- Spam Karma 2.
    Then install and activate Bad Behavior.
