150,000 Comment and Trackback Spam

Geek News Central: We averaged over 150,000 attempts each day. Heck a lot of sites would love to get that kind of traffic. Considering their are 86,400 seconds in a day this breaks down to about 2 attempts every second. Someone needs to get a handle on this.

Randy: Here's an interesting thought. What if, we track the domains that have trackback/comment SPAM pointing into them? Publish a list of worst offending, along with their domain records, which happens to include email addresses and phone numbers. First we need a Web service where we can forward the SPAM.
