Comment spam...

I'm sure that the readers of this site have noticed the sudden deluge of comment spam that seems to have been inflicted upon this site.  I've had to start a morning ritual of deleting these bogus posts (and, unfortunately, any post that replies to them).  Of course, now that I've commented on them, they'll probably start kickin' it up a notch and increase the traffic.  I'm going to request that we change the comment system to require that the commenter have a BDN account.  This way, if there are any abuses, we can simply turn off their account.  I hate to have to push for this, but this is yet another thing that is going to be ruined by a few jerks out there.  I haven't turned off allowing comments for now since the number of these messages hasn't become too burdensome... just annoying.
