    The amount of spam posts is unbelievable, makes me wonder how they find all the sites to spam. Is there a sure fire way to rid of these spam comments without having to deal with manually? you know they are spam because they always link to products.

    On my contact form I have "captcha" to stop spamming, where a user has to prove they are human by typing in a few numbers shown to them, and I've seen others where the user has to answer a question to be able to post.

    Can you incorporate something like that? There might be a plugin that can help you

    You should first be using Akismet plug-in which comes with WP - though you need to activate it - see:
