fighting comment spam

Title
fighting comment spam

Short, concise description of the idea
as I've started getting spam as comments on my entries, I thought I'd share this idea to fight it.

Full description of the idea
The idea is not mine, but is contained in this article: http://www.rustylime.com/show_article.php?id=338 . I am passing on this because i think it is a beautifully simple idea, even though I lack the technical acumen to know it would work with the LJ comment code. Hope you find it of some use. :)
