There is a way to block the IP addresses of these spambots using what's called an MT Blacklist. Unfortunately, if you don't know what you're doing you could potentially throw a monkey wrench into the works by using it. That's what happened yesterday when someone was trying to shield themselves from these annoying spam comments. As a result, the whole system went kerflooey. The administrator is doing his best to upgrade the server including putting in verification codes for comments that spambots cannot read. I will let everyone know how this is working out as he feverishly works to put this into place. In the meantime, thanks for your patience.
Rest assured I haven't banned anyone from commenting on the site (except for the chosen few that I have - and you know who you are!) and as of now everything seems to be back to normal.
