Comment Spam at Blogger Getting Out of Hand

I've changed my comment policy slightly. I'm enabling comment moderation in posts that are older than 365 days.

This morning I got spammed in a way I've never been spammed before. A spam-bot with the handle xiaoyu posted the same comment spam in what appears to be each and every one of my blog posts.

It's a shame that Blogger doesn't have a good way to deal with comment spam. Their captcha obviously isn't working very well. Unfortunately, I don't believe spam-filtering is a breeze in other platforms either.
