    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.

    Not all that much you can do, especially if they are rotating through proxies.

    Do they leave any common footprint at all?

    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.
