Comment spam is a real nuisance and you should use the Akismet plug-in (already installed) to prevent spam. All you need is an API key. Here's a good tutorial (http://weblogtoolscollection.com/archives/2009/07/21/wordpress-setting-up-akismet/) that describes the steps.

Ah, but now what will I do when I am looking for someone to sell me medication without a prescription, an immitation Rolex or requesting transfer of $1000 instantly to secure a million dollar inheritance from an Uncle I never knew I had living in Nigeria?
Also, I wonder if I had posted the above on a blog with Akismet on it, would it count as spam :unsure:

David, do we have to install this plugin? There is no 'Plugins' tab in my dashboard...

The plugin is already installed by default. All you need to do is enter the Akismet code. See the tutorial I linked to above.
