My client is using disqus version Version 2.73 on his site, artistsandfleas.com, but he keeps getting spam comments, and doesn't know how to stop this from appearing.
Here is one example of the spam:

I went to some forums and saw that Disqus saves the spam in the database, even though you remove them from Disqus. Can you let me know how I can get rid of or prevent spam from coming through the system. Thanks.
