    How can I block these forum comment bots from spamming my blog?

    I have, for the last few days, been getting over 1500 page views and
    hundreds of spam comments daily on my blog.

    This is getting crazy.

    For Wordpress you should already have Akismet installed by default. You just need to activate it and go get a key. It will kill 95% for you.
