Firstly, upgrade Wordpress to the latest version. That comes with Akismet which is amazing at dealing with spam.

AKISMET is a good plugin for spam.

You can use verification code to protect from spam.

Recapatcha is fantastic. It also has an e-mail hiding component, which is a nice touch.

WP has a lot of anti-spam plugins; if you enable one, disable the other (Askimet). Try to keep the amount of plugins you have to a minimum so that you don't overload the SQL database.

I'd also check out Challenge (http://lordchaos.dominatus.net/wordp...ugin-challenge), but I'm not sure when it was updated last, to be honest.

U can have a very easy plugin to it, when people leave comment, he has to verify code or answer question or so.

Hope that will help!
