Just deployed Akismet as a second-source spam filter for Minx. It only needed a little tweaking and is now running happily.
If you get blocked - you shouldn't, but if you do - please email me.
Update: In unrelated news, I accidentally deleted all my comments. That's the comments I'd posted myself, not the ones on this blog. I've put 99.5% of them back where they were; the remaining 9 are in the system but floating about detached from the posts. I'll fix those later.

FWIW, I actually had to take one of my own comments out of "junk" status on my own blog.

It should be better now; let me know if you have any further problems.

Spam still getting through; tweaked some more.

I think it's probably impossible to stop it all, sad to say. Even requiring a login doesn't work 100%; I had a couple of spams about two weeks ago.

What's even worse is I've been seeing ones that indicate a human who actually read the blog post, has troubled themselves to create a login, and has made a relevant
comment followed by a spammy link. In one case, it was a comment on a blogspot blog, and the person had a Google+ account.
