    I never had this problem with 1.5, I have the option checked "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" but spammers are still leaving comments, any ideas?

    Are they leaving comments or trackbacks/pingbacks?

    Yeah, sign up for a wordpress.com blog and get your API key, then activate the akismet plugin using that key. Spam problem solved.

    SK is more likely to block normal users though.

    if you really want a firewall, install both. they don't interfere with each other, and you shouldn't even have a hint of spam

    Ok, I'll try these suggestions and report back, but there must be a security hole if people are getting into comment without an account, no?

    No. Read up on HTTP Form POST a bit :)
