WordPress Tip: Eliminating Spam
One way you can eliminate spam (besides activating Akismet) is by removing all the spam that shows up in comment threads on specific posts. This is because spam attracts spam. So if you can cut out spam from a post, you're less likely to get more spam on that same post.
