Comments flooding

Having just looked at my MT activity log, I've noticed a new pattern to comments spam, which reinforced what I already knew: MT-Blacklist is absolutely essential.

At 00:48 on Wednesday, MT-Blacklist successfully blocked a comment advertising a certain URL.  By 01:36, 130 more adverts for the same URL, from the same IP address, had been blocked; five per minute, at 'peak flow'.
There have been three other instances of the same practice since then (i.e. three URLs, 100+ comments each), in addition to the usual attacks of 3-6 comments per URL.

Update now!
