At Last, Spam!!

You know you’ve hit it big when you get inundated with spam.

This post from last week (ironically about adding comments to my blog) has been hit with a bunch of comment spam.

This is good news, because it means I need to develop some anti-spam measure, and that’s sure to let me show off some other Windows Azure feature.

Perhaps I should sign up for Akismet and use it asynchronously from a worker role.  Or maybe I should build some custom analysis of my own (Bayesian approach on comment text may not work, but an analysis of the URL submitted and what it points to probably would).

Any suggestions for what I should do?  Any other tools or libraries I can reuse?
