Will no one rid me of this troublesome spam?

· Best Practices

I wasn’t kidding about wanting a intern to volunteer for spam-destruction. As a perk I will offer posting privileges to the front page of this blog to anyone (who is already a blogger) who volunteers for this all-important spam squelching mode.
This requires both deleting spam and banning URLs daily but also noticing the patterns and coming up with a proposal for how to deal with this in the long run (move to WordPress or Scoop? what about wiki spam?).
(Note: I googled will no one rid me of this * and learned that the original Henry quotation vis-a-vis Thomas à Becket is alternately rendered as Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?, Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest? and – to my mind, the least likely as it makes less sense unless the meanings have really changed, or vice versa the most likely as having been replaced with other words if perhaps the meaning of turbulent has in fact changed (paging the OED) – Wll no one rid me of this turbulent priest?.)
