Yeah. The problem is how to make something that isn't a barrier to
normal users. Moderating account registrations and moderating users'
first posts should catch a lot of it.

This is where Akismet is useful - it uses both Bayesian filtering (for
spammy keywords) and a distributed trouble-source database across
thousands of WordPress installations. In my experience on my blog it
gets a few false negatives and almost no false positives. You'll need
to watch it, but it's worth a try!
