We develop our own scripts using varied languages and means and can defeat nearly any standard security measure you put in place.
We’re doing this because bloggers provide a waste to the internet, an amassing of imbeciles who think they deserve to be heard, and think people actually care.
Your only real solution is to turn all comments off. Obviously this will mean your egos will no longer be stroked.

Yes, this is a kiddie hacker, no doubt. This was manually done, and then the auto script was turned on.
Unfortunately, the kiddies are attacking in force now. Note that mt-blacklist will not work. Nor will the new measures put out by Movable Type. Sam Ruby’s update could work, but I don’t have the second component of it in place, so it’s not implemented yet.
