    I hope this hasn't already been posted, I didn't see it...
    I too have been getting lots of spam comments. I changed my setting to Hold a comment in the queue if it contains more than 2 links. I just got a comment posted with 3 links in it. I decided to do a test and I was also able to post a comment with 3 links in it, using just www links. Then I posted with full url http://www etc. The first posted and the second went to moderation. Is this normal?

    Not really. When you say three links, are you including the one posted in the "website" field? Along with Name and Email? As far as I can tell, the link moderation only counts links posted in the actual comment.

    No, I'm not counting that one. I put three in the comment itself.

    It seems like some spammers have found a way around this. There are plenty of alternatives here: http://tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/spam/
