Comment Spam Blacklists

Scott point out a new Feedster feature, comment spam reporting.

Scott has the first part implemented in that you can now report IP addresses that spam your blog. The next piece is going to be an API of some sort to allow people to check against the DB when someone actually posts a comment.

My one small problem? What if a vindictive person deicdes they don't like someone who is commenting on their blog and starts adding them to the database and gives a legitimate person whom someone doesn't like a bad rep? I would say there needs to be some level of a once per user or something protection, so that a person can not get blacklisted due to dislike.

Otherwise, cool service, will have to remember to use it if I ever start getting comment spam, which I would assume will start happening sooner or later as more and more people are linking to me these days.
