Thanks to all, Akismet seems to be the ticket. I know what you're saying
Kris but I'll be blown if I'm picking and changing the naming policy of
my sites because some tube thinks they can get hits for Viagra. It never
ceases to amaze me, not that spam gets through but that people bother. I
honestly don't know anyone who would respond to an comment like this:


Ambien us pharmacy. Ambien. Where can i buy ambien for next day
delivery. Ambien lethal...."

I mean it ends with "lethal" for goodness sake.
