I've been spammed!!

One of the comments to my previous post was a spam message. Had read a few months ago that Blogger and LJ were working on combating blog-spams, but little seems to have happened on that front.

I find blog-spams to be worse than the spam mails that flood our inboxes for the following reasons.

1. I cannot delete the spam comment. The only way I can remove it is to switch off the commenting facility - which I am definitely not inclined towards.

2. This blog is MY personal space, and posting such spam messages in it is a violation of my privacy and equivalent to trespassing my virtual space.

One thing Blogger/LJ could do is allow bloggers to mark comments as spam - and such comments may at least be relegated to the bottom of the comments page (after a break-line that says "The following were categorized as spam by the author of this blog").
Is anyone listening?
