Spam is made from Spamimals

For a few months now I've been getting comment spammed by random sleazeballs who can't think of a better way to sell their worthless products and services. I'd get new spam every few days. Then once a day. Then a couple of times a day. Each time only a few individual spam comments. I prompted delete each one. It's been like this since October. Tonight I check and dicover some idiot spammer is apparently upset I've been deleting his crap and so posted over 200 new spamments. Now Movable Type doesn't have a quick way to delete all 200 quickly. Nope, I've got to click three times for each spamment. Six hundred mouse clicks to get rid of this crap. I think I'm read to begin my ritual killing spree now. Names and home addresses of known spammers would be a big timesaver so send 'em if you got 'em. In the meantime I'm turning off comments for now until I can figure out how to quickly purge spam. Before it gets out of hand, I'd like to say the whole "ritual killing spree" this is entirely a joke! (names and addresses would still be appreciated though)

Jeremy has an idea but I don't think it'll be effective.
