WordPress Spammers

This site is my simple little blog, that I spend a little time on each Sunday to write about what bugs me. Its a new site and it has no following, but I getting really sick and tired of all those spammers who drop spam comments to my posts just to get a backlink to their sites. The comments never get approved, so they wasted their time; BUT, they also wasted my time as I go through all the comments. Yes, I have all the automated processes in place to deal with the spam; its just the manual ones that are getting through. I getting really tired of it. I would love to meet these spammers in dark alley to show them what I really fell about them.
