    The more efficient: disable comment

    else:
    _ add or change input name of the form, all automated bot would fail (very efficient)
    _ use traditionnal akismet or stopforumspam traditionnal plugin (detect based on knewn spammers ip / email)
    _ enable captchas

    There are already many extension that do all this stuff

    Also an efficient mesure is to ask a unique question related to your website. If you make a website about Jackon, you can ask how many finger in the A55 he had when he died
