It looks like spammers are set on ruining the entire internet. Not only do I get 1000's of unwanted emails every day, but now spammers are starting to pollute blog comments.
Fortunately the guys over at Akismet have developed an anti-comment-spam web API. There are multiple libraries that have been developed for Akismet, though none for .Net. Since I am going to be implementing this on Joel.net, I figured I would just wrap it all up into an easy to use library for me and you too!
