Had to set my comment moderation to "Always" because someone's spamming my blog. Anyone have tricks for screening this nonsense?

I've been pretty lucky so far. Haven't had a lot of problems with it.

I've set the default for Blogger to e-mail me all new comments, and to moderate comments on blog entries older than two weeks. I frequently get spammed on old blog entries, so by moderating them I can delete them before they're published. I rarely seem to get spammed on fresh entries. When I do, since I find out quickly due to the e-mail, I just go to the blog and immediately delete the spam.

I've discovered the blog entries that are spammed most seem to contain key words that may be related to sex (whether or not I intended to refer to sex when I wrote the entry).
