Freaking spam! Is it just LJ or everyone?

I allow anonymous comments, but screen them. I would say that half - or more! - of my comments are now spam. Often in another language. (I got my first German spam yesterday, so I could actually read that one.) What's really upsetting is that two of the blog posts that get spammed the most are ones I wrote about my friend Bridget Zinn, who died in May.

It's nearly enough to drive me away from Live Journal. I know a lot of people have mirror or companion journals - is the spam issue as bad on other sites? Do other places handle it better?

Do you think I should just turn off anonymous comments altogether?

Other advice?
