Interesting post and discussion about spam in comments from Adam Kalsey - Comment spam

There is a benefit over collaborative spam detection on the web over email. Email is essentially private, so a person has to submit a spammer to the blacklist database. Blogs are essentially public, at least the type of blogs that suffer from spam comments. It would be possible to have a pro-active system that could monitor subscribed sites instead of relying on operators to submit each spammer to the blacklist.
