DIG losing the battle with spammers again

Blog spam went out of control again; the only remedy I could find was a very big hammer: turn off the drupal comments module altogether and in doing so, unpublish all comments ever posted to this site. I suppose they're still in the database and could be published again, if we could separate them from the spam.

The drupal expertise in our group seems to have gone on to greener pastures. That prompted me to divest from my family business drupal installation and start a hosted wordpress site and makes me wonder how safe is stuff that I write here...
