I’d like to suggest a suggestion to Reduce Comment Spam here. Once it’s verified it can be added to http://codex.wordpress.org/Combat_Comment_Spam
The sugegstion is at http://www.syndic8.com/~jeff/blog/index.php?p=103 which is quite a old blog post, but I have used the code there in WP 1.2 and now in WP 2.0.3 eg at a page like http://www.bhatt.id.au/blog/top-gear-bbc-and-sbs-tv/ and it is a very effective 1st level defence with akismet mopping up the few manual spams that get through
The only change required to Jeff’s post is you need to edit comments.php and wp-comments-post.php in WP 2.0.3
